LIGHTING THE WAY by The Dalai Lama

About this book Lighting The Way contains three fundamental Buddhist teachings given by the Dalai Lama to Western students. “Principles of Buddhism” provides the framework for understanding Buddha Shakyamuni’s first and fundamental teachings on the Four Noble Truths, upon which all of his other teachings are based. “Teachings on the Eight Verses of Training the Mind” comments on a classic text within the genre of Tibetan spiritual writing known as lojong (literally, “mind training”). His Holiness often refers to this short work as one of his main sources of inspiration for the practice of compassion. Finally, the Dalai Lama’s commentary on Atisha’s Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment discusses in a lucid and inspiring manner one of the most important texts for serious practitioners of Buddhism.
