AbstractBuddhist traditions unanimously state that compassion and love are the foundation of all paths of practice. To cultivate the potential for compassion and love inherent within us, it is crucial to counteract their opposing forces of anger and hatred. The Dalai Lama shows how patience and tolerance overcome the obstacles of anger and hatred. His Holiness presents the practice of the Six Perfections, the central role of bodhichitta, the twelve links of dependent origination and offers a clear road map for the practitioner to achieve the goal of liberation. The techniques and methods are relevant for everyone--the Dalai Lama shows the power that patience and tolerance have to heal anger and to generate peace in the world.

The book is a commentary by the Dalai Lama on a rare text by 9th-century Indian Buddhist scholar Kamalashila that was written in Tibet to correct some Chinese misinterpretations of Buddhism that were influential at the time. Khamalashila's short work is not widely known today, but according to the Dalai Lama, it is a most important text, and is worthy of study by those new to Buddhism because "on the basis of this knowledge you will be able to understand other treatises without great difficulty. This text can be like a key that open the door to all other major Buddhist scriptures."
Throughout the program, the Dalai Lama emphasizes the importance of the logical analysis of scriptures, even if they are in the Buddha's own words. Some teachings, he stresses, "should not be taken literally, but need interpretation." And interpretation is what the Dalai Lama gives in this clear and enjoyable commentary, originally given in 1989 and now translated and published for the first time. Included are such familiar Buddhist themes as training the mind, compassion, identifying the nature of suffering, and the practice of calm abiding. Those who practice meditation, whether Buddhist or not, will find this a thoughtful and practical guide, written with the Dalai Lama's characteristic warmth and gentleness.
