Synopsis

2 Titles in 1 book. Omnibus Edition :

In Ancient Wisdom, Modern World, His Holiness the Dalai Lama addresses these issues, in a spiritual complement to his autobiography Freedom in Exile.

Ancient Wisdom, Modern World - With wit, gentle good sense and with penetrating insight, the Dalai Lama shows how the truths that have stood the test of generations of practise can provide us with the tools to live happy, fulfilled and meaningful lives. In the process, it becomes apparent that he does not merely espouse the 'feelgood' religiosity some accuse him of.

The reader is left admiring not just the wisdom of the author, but the wisdom of the culture he represents.

Freedom in Exile - Here, in his own words, The Dalai Lama describes what it was like to grow up revered as a deity among his people, reveals his innermost feelings about his role, and discusses the mysteries of Tibetan Buddhism.

He tells of secret deals struck with the CIA as Tibet continued to struggle for independence, talks freely of the many world leaders he has known, and talks of the West's malaise from his standpoint as a spiritual and temporal figure of world renown.

"A fascinating journey through Tibet and the story of the childhood of Dalai Lama. It surprised me to find that Dalai Lama's childhood was far more harsh, and sometimes sad, that I would have expected." - Goodreads Review.
