"Pay attention not only to the cultivation of knowledge but to the cultivation of qualities of the heart, so that at the end of education, not only will you be knowledgeable, but also you will be a warm-hearted and compassionate person."

-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama, from Live in a Better Way

As accessible as it is inspirational, this audiobook to approaching life "in a better way" represents a decade's worth of His Holiness's annual public lectures given in India to audiences from all walks of life. The Dalai Lama's characteristically candid guidance on living fully and responsibly, especially at the onset of a new millennium, focuses on specific themes that range from religious tolerance to compassion and non-violence. With a practical introduction to Buddhism and the Dalai Lama's own spiritual heritage, written by renowned Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, this is the perfect audiobook for seekers at any stage along the path of life.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Good examples of how the Dalai Lama must be supremely accessible in thought and speech…The book’s ultimate message of happiness through compassion is a vital one.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Occasionally a book comes along that you want to take outside, shove into the hand of every passerby, and say, ‘Read this and be enlightened.’ The Dalai Lama’s latest collection of lectures is like that.” 

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Accessible without being overly simplistic. Losang Gyatso exudes the quiet patience that is integral to the teachings presented. He is neither preachy nor overly earnest. His manner is consistent with that of a teacher who is encouraging his students to learn through the words of the Buddha and other teachers and ultimately to find their own way in whatever religion they call their own.”
