  • How To Be Compassionate
  • by Dalai Lama
  • Price: $20.00

Who better to speak of compassion than the man who embodies it? How to Be Compassionate is a compilation of the Dalai Lama's teachings on the subject, beginning with the problem of anger and hatred. He discusses how to lessen anger's hold, points out the basic mistakes of attitude that lead to inner turmoil, and offers practical exercises to overcome these problems. Finally, he demonstrates how to respond to difficult situations and urges us to practice and cultivate compassion for the sake of ourselves and the world. Enlivened by personal anecdotes and his own experiences, His Holiness shows that the path to global harmony begins in individual hearts.
