Dalai Lama books
- A lot of his books are taken from speeches he has given to various groups, so how accessable his writing is may depend on who he was talking to at the time. If you're at the bookstore, try flipping though a number of them. Personally, I like the books where he answers people's questions, as he is particularly down-to-earth at those times.The first one I read was "The Meaning of Life." But I know what you mean - I have a couple books of his I picked up that I will probably have to save for a later time when I understand more about Buddhism. I think he has a surprisingly good understanding of the Western perspective, though, and the kinds of things that are likely to be confusing or difficult for westerners, and that's why I like to read him.----- Original Message -----From: Denroche The first one I read was "The Meaning of Life."Sent: Tuesday, June 03, 2003 4:24 PMSubject: Re: [Buddhism_101] Self vs. Non-Self (was Meditation and Therapy)Dear Diane,Thank you very much for your comments and for contributing the wonderful quotations from the Dalai Lama. I have only read one book by him and, at the time, I found his writing relatively inaccessible. However, I will certainly get hold of a copy of 'Live in a Better Way', as it appears to address many of the areas that I am involved with at the moment.That is what is so wonderful about Buddhism - it is so relevant to today. Psychology is relatively young but the revelations of the Buddha have been 'tried and tested' for over two thousand years, and yet have a wonderful timelessness.Much love and support on your path,deni(My email somehow appeared twice - and the second time under Debora's name.)
