An Open Heart

Practicing Compassion in Everyday Life

by The Dalai Lama
Paperback
Publication Date: 01/10/2001
RRP  $24.99 $23.25
When His Holiness the Dalai Lama visited New York in August 1999, over 50 000 people flocked to hear him speak in Central Park. For over two hours these New Yorkers, a group of people noted more for their cynicism and indifference than their devout spirituality, listened in rapt silence. It was one of two public appearances by the Dalai Lama, which encompassed the whole of Buddhist practice, delineating the path to be followed in the pursuit of enlightenment.

The Dalai Lama s commentary in An Open Heart provides profound and practical guidance on how to develop qualities of compassion and loving kindness, as well as generosity, patience, perseverance, concentration and wisdom, in striving towards the ultimate goal, the state of Buddhahood.

The book has been edited by Nicholas Vreeland, a Buddhist monk who now directs New York s Tibet Centre, co-sponsor of the Dalai Lama s visit. It features approximately 40 photographs, from the Dalai Lama s descent to the tarmac at Kennedy and greeting from host Richard Gere, to his bowing before Central Park s huge crowd.

With the enormous success of The Art of Happiness and Ethics for the New Millennium, both New York Times bestsellers, this more conventionally Buddhist book by the Dalai Lama will serve the public s growing interest in the profound wisdom he embodies.

The Dalai Lama

His Holiness the Dalai Lama was born on July 6, 1935, to a poor farming family in northeastern Tibet. At the age of two he was recognised as the Dalai Lama, the spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet, the fourteenth in a succession dating back six hundred years.

At age six he began his lifelong training as a Buddhist monk. Since 1959, he has lived in exile from Tibet in Dharamsala, India. His tireless efforts on behalf of human rights, world peace, and basic human values have brought him international recognition.

He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize and a U.S. Congressional Gold Medal.
