Description
His Holiness the Dalai Lama offers an extraordinary example of a life dedicated to peace, communication, and unity, declares Tibetan scholar Robert Thurman. Here Thurman presents a history of Buddhism, the Dalai Lamas, and Tibet, as well as offering a first-hand portrait of the 14th Dalai Lama, his friend since 1965. The author also outlines a five-point plan for creating an autonomous Tibet, which he believes would require the Chinese government to come to terms with the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s spiritual leader in exile.

"No one has worked harder to bring Tibet, Tibetan Buddhism, and the special power of the Dalai Lama to American audiences than Robert Thurman. Long may he write and, as in this latest work, bring learning and spirit, great vigor, and close knowledge together."—Pico Iyer
