Drawn from the lectures he gave during his first three visits to North America, the book covers the core subject matter of Tibetan Buddhism, as presented for the first time to an English-speaking audience. The chapters are arranged developmentally from simple to complex topics, which include the luminous nature of the mind, the four noble truths, karma, the common goals of the world's religions, meditation, deities, and selflessness. Central to all these teachings is the necessity of compassion-which the Dalai Lama says is "the essence of religion" and "the most precious thing there is." Series Overview: The Core Teachings of the Dalai Lama series presents essential teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama that focus on the foundational, practical, and proven methods taught by the Buddha and his followers over the last 2,500 years. The common thread throughout all these teachings by His Holiness is how-through contemplation and meditation-we can transform our minds, freeing us from the weight of our negative emotions and imbuing our hearts with a compassion rooted in the wisdom of how connected we really are.
