The Dalai Lama as You've Never Heard Him Before
A few years ago, prominent cultural anthropologist Noriyuki Ueda sat down with the Dalai Lama for a lively two-day conversation. This little book is the result. In it are some surprising truths and commonsense wisdom.
"The attachment that seeks what is good is worthwhile. Seeking enlightenment is a kind of attachment that we should keep, as is the desire for an unbiased heart."
"Anger that is motivated by compassion or a desire to correct social injustice, and does not seek to harm anyone, is a good anger worth having."
"I'm not only a socialist, but also a bit of a leftist, a Communist."
"The type of competition that says, 'I am the winner, and you are the loser' must be overcome. But a positive competition allows us to lift each other up so that everybody ends up on top."
Open the book to any page and find great wisdom on what matters most. And what matters most is not adherence to any one doctrine or political system but living with an open mind and heart.

Book Description Hodder Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In conversation with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In April of 2006, the prominent Japanese cultural anthropologist Noriyuki Ueda sat down with the Dalai Lama for a two day conversation. This book is based on that long and lively conversation in Dharamsala. In this little book, the two men explore whether there is a place in religious practice for anger against social injustice, the role of competition in spiritual life, conditional versus unconditional love, and the soullessness of materialism.One of the real pleasures of this book is the Dalai Lama s uncharacteristic candor. For example: I am not only a socialist but also a bit of a leftist, a Communist. I hold the position of a high monk, a big lama. Unless I exercise self restraint, there is every possibility for me to exploit others. He also argues that rather than suppressing anger, Buddhism embraces using anger to precipitate social change. In other words anger can be an important spiritual practice. This book offers a unique perspective on the Dalai Lama s political and spiritual views. And it guides the reader through the complex reality of what it means to practice compassion in the here and now. Seller Inventory # AA69781444784411
