Quotes

  • “Powerful…Packed with wise advice and perceptive observations.”

    - Parade
  • “Impassioned… An excellent introduction for those unfamiliar with the Dalai Lama’s simple-seeming teachings for improving a complex, globally interconnected world.”

    - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “Fascinating.…A global leader encourages young people to revel in the cause of peace.”

    - Booklist
  • “Like the Dalai Lama himself, Edoardo Ballerini’s narration has a gentle steadiness that imparts a sense of quiet conviction and optimism. As His Holiness describes the trials he himself has faced and those he sees in the world today, Ballerini’s narration captures his wisdom and peacefulness in the face of adversity. In these contentious times of hate-mongering rhetoric, armed conflict, and climate change, the Dalai Lama remains a comforting voice calling for the fostering of peace and dialogue.”
