From the Back Cover:

This first-ever series of in-depth dialogues with Samdhong Rinpoche, the current Prime Minister of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, presents his refreshing views on a wide range of pressing topics including the problems of the present political world order, the philosophy of "non-violence" (Ahimsa) and "truth-insistence" (Satyagraha), and the plight of Tibet in the face of the communist Chinese invasion. Informed throughout by his deep belief in the principles of Tibetan Buddhism, Samdhong Rinpoche holds to an uncompromising vision of the Truth--the way the world could be if it renounced its destructive path of unprincipled pragmatism and worldly compromise.

About the Author:

Donovan Roebert is the founder and coordinator of the South African Friends of Tibet. Born in East London, South Africa, he is a painter whose works are sold internationally. A devoted practitioner of Mahayana Buddhism for over a decade, he has also written several religious and philosophical articles on reconciling new physics and the neurosciences with the subjective human religious experience. He lives in Broederstroom, South Africa.

Samdhong Rinpoche was the first political leader to be directly elected by the people-in-exile. He lives in India. He is the subject of Samdhong Rinpoche’s Uncompromising Truth for a Compromised World.

His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, is both the spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people. Following the invasion of Tibet by the communist-inspired Chinese Army in 1959 and the impending threat on his life, he escaped into exile and has since resided in Dharmsala, the seat of the Tibetan Government-in-exile. He is a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and an author of numerous books and essays, including Kindness, Clarity and Insight (1984), A Human Approach to World Peace (1984), and Ocean of Wisdom (1989).
