In this accessible book, His Holiness the Dalai Lama considers such well-known Gospel passages as the Sermon on the Mount, the Healing of the Sick and the Resurrection. He offers fresh perspectives on these familiar Christian sources of faith, and also considers such widespread concerns as inner transformation, meditation, ritual, and the ideas of reward and punishment, heaven and hell. His exploration of the parallels and differences between Buddhism and Christianity gives us a model of dialogue for the coming era of global spirituality, which will open the windows of understanding for the modern spiritual seeker of any faith. About the Author His Holiness the Dalai Lama was born in1935 in the village of Takster in Tibet. He was enthroned officially on 22 February 1940 as the XIV Dalai Lama, but Chinese occupation forced him to flee the country in 1959. Since then he has campaigned tirelessly for aid for Tibet and also for other international causes. His efforts for peace and the environment have earned him many awards, including the Palketta Award, the Raoul Wallenberg Congressional Human Rights Award and the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize.
