AbstractThe Dalai Lama presents the basic worldview of Buddhism while answering some of life's most profound and challenging questions: Why
are we in this situation? Where are we going? How should we live our lives? Do our lives have any meaning? Basing his explanation on the
twelve links of dependent-arising as depicted in the Buddhist image of the Wheel of Life, His Holiness vividly describes how human beings
become trapped in a counterproductive prison of selfishness and suffering, and shows how to reverse the process, changing the limiting prison
into a source of help and happiness for others. Suffused with the Dalai Lama's intelligence, wit, and kindness, these teachings address such
issues as how to deal with aggression from within and without; how to reconcile personal responsibility with the doctrine of selflessness; how
to face a terminal illness; how to help someone who is dying; how to reconcile love for family with love for all beings; and how to integrate
this practice into everyday life.
