About the Author
His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the spiritual and political leader of Tibet. Today, he lives in exile in Northern India and works tirelessly on behalf of the Tibetan people, as well as travelling the world to give spiritual teachings to sell-out audiences. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
Popular psychology takes a new turn with this extraordinary book in which psychiatrist Howard Cutler distils the wisdom of the Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of the Tibetans in exile. Using both public speeches and private discussions, Cutler reports the Dalai Lama's thoughts alongside a commentary based on modern psychiatric practice and research findings. In this remarkable work, blending both scientific insight and Tibetan Buddhist enlightenment, they explore various psychological themes - the purpose of life (happiness), the importance of compassion, relationships, loneliness, finding meanings in suffering, dealing with pain or anger.
