Familiar acumen from the Dalai Lama: a accumulating of lectures that His Holiness (The Path to Tranquility, 1999, etc.) has delivered in contempo years.The apple we alive in is now bedeviled by science and technology, the Dalai Lama observes sadly. But we don’t all accept to be bargain to asinine technocrats: we can convenance altruism, love, and compassion. Some nonbelievers, His Holiness says, may address off such Pollyanna-ish virtues as applying alone to religious folk, but they are acute for us all. His lectures are abounding with absolute nuggets: abstemiousness can be tough, but it ultimately leads to a activity abounding with beatitude and respect; apprenticeship should pay as abundant absorption to airy development as to developing gray matter; one should be complex in adherence alike if one eschews organized religion; bodies (and alike pets) apperceive back we’re alleviative them dishonestly or unfairly. It charge be said that some of the Dalai Lama’s acumen is a blow Hallmark-ish: “If one wants added smiles in one’s life, one charge actualize the appropriate altitude for it.” And sometimes he artlessly serves up the obvious: if you are anxious about your neighbors and you’re friendly, “other bodies will . . . acknowledge appropriately.” Although not advised as a Buddhist primer, this accumulating does painlessly acquaint readers to concepts like afterlife and pratityasamutpada (the approach of interdependence). That is its capital virtue.The Dalai Lama’s admirers will no agnosticism be captivated by this new offering; others may admiration what distinguishes His Holiness from Robert Fulghum.
