by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, photographs by Ian Cumming. This book brings together four previously published books. In The Heart of the Buddha's Path and The Four Noble Truths (also released together as A Simple Path), the Dalai Lama discusses the essence of Buddhism, the Four Noble Truths, compassion, the interdependence of reality, the principle of non-violence, and the Three Jewels of the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. In The Power of Compassion the Dalai Lama discusses modern issues like racial hatred, abortion, war and how they can be understood and reconciled with a positive view of humans. In the Art Of Living, the Dalai Lama talks about the problems of suffering, living, and dying. This kind of Best Of The Dalai Lama book is not appropriate for a beginner. Being a little complex, I had to read it slowly to understand the Dalai Lama's talks. But, to the honest, I really bought this book for the beautiful photos of landscapes, monasteries, and Tibetan people that accompany the text on just about every page.
