The Dalai Lama, a living symbol of holiness and selfless triumph over tribulation, has shared his philosophy of peace with today's turbulent world. Yet rarely do we hear him speak with such directness as in this collection of quotations drawn from his own writings, teachings, and interviews.

The Path To Tranquility, a fresh and accessible introduction to his inspirational wisdom, offers words of guidance, compassion, and peace that are as down to earth as they are rich in spirit. It covers almost every aspect of human life, secular and religious -- happiness, intimacy, loneliness, suffering, anger, and everyday insecurities -- with endearing informality, warmth, and practicality.

    " I had such a hard time with this book. I read a meditation every morning and liked this to begin with, but later found it too confusing to try to really apply. I found myself putting it down and reading another morning meditation book within a month or so. "

    " I followed the directions, and read this book over the course of a whole year. It was absolutely worth it. Both meditational and useful as a devotional, I enjoyed this book very much. I could start each day with a thought to think about as I woke up. "
