Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
HH the Dalai Lama has a reputation for teaching Buddhist philosophies in a way that people from the west can understand and this book is no exception.

The book includes basic information on Tibetan Buddhism such as Dharma teachings, how to overcome emotions like anger, hatred and jealousy and information regarding interpretation of scriptures as well as HH the Dalai Lamas usual brand of cheeky humour.

The book also covers the broad subject of Tantra. I personally feel this may be a bit out of place in a book designed for beginners to Buddhism and may daunt some with its complexity which is why I didn't give the book five stars. However, in general you'd be hard to go wrong reading this book. Like most of HH the Dalai Lamas writings they have been written with the Western reader in mind and his unique way of explaining things gets the message across more often that not.

It's a kind of verbatim recording of lectures that Dalai Lama gave. I'd rather have a structured text. Have only read the beginning, I admit, but I think it suffers from not being edited.
