Summary
For more than half a century, the Dalai Lama has guided us along the path to compassion and taught us how to improve our inner lives. Here, with the help of his longtime friend Daniel Goleman, the bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence, the Dalai Lama explains how to turn our compassionate energy outward. Much more than just the most prominent exponent of Tibetan Buddhism, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama is also a futurist who possesses a profound understanding of current events and a remarkable canniness for modern social issues. When he takes the stage worldwide, people listen. This book combines the central concepts of the Dalai Lama, empirical evidence that supports them, and true stories of people who are putting his ideas into action--showing how harnessing positive energies and directing them outward has lasting and meaningful effects. Goleman details the science of compassion and how this singular guiding motivation has the power to: break such destructive social forces as corruption, collusion, and bias; heal the planet by refocusing our concerns toward our impact on the systems that support all life; reverse the tendency toward systemic inequity through transparency and accountability; replace violence with dialogue; counter us-and-them thinking by recognizing human oneness; create new economic systems that work for everyone, not just the powerful and rich; design schooling that teaches empathy, self-mastery, and ethics. Now, when the world needs his guidance more than ever, the Dalai Lama shows how every compassion-driven human act--no matter how small--is integral for a more peaceful, harmonious world, building a force for a better future.--From publisher description
