4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 17 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Little Book Of Buddhism (Paperback)
In this small book the Dalai Lama speaks of compassion, anger, forgiveness of enemies, and living life in a truly more loving way. Though much of it seems familar to western ears [the ideas of love compassion and service are not unknown in western religion and philosophy], the simplicity of much of what the dalai lama says is refreshing. His own struggles with anger are interesting, and the prose, gleaned from past lectures, smooth and clean. I also highly recommend "Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom" by Taro Gold which I found wonderfully enlightening.

I'd just like to comment that, although you are quite right to say that compassion and service are not unknown in western religion, Buddhist practitioners take absolute responsibility for that and do not depend upon deities to imbue them with these qualities. One of the five daily recollections to be recited by Buddhist practitoners is:
I am the owner of my actions (kharma),
heir to my actions (karma),
born of my actions (karma),
related to my actions (karma),
abide supported by my actions (karma).
Whatever actions (karma) I shall do, whether good or evil, of that I shall be the heir.
