CORE TEACHINGS OF TIBETAN BUDDHISM
"To practise Buddhism is to wage a struggle between the negative and positive forces in your mind. The meditator seeks to undermine the negative and develop the positive. The teachings in this book are meant to transform the mind; to read or listen to a single passage can bring great benefit."
from the Introduction by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
'The Way to Freedom', the inaugural volume of the landmark Library of the Tibet series, is the essential primer on Tibetan Buddhism for newcomer and advanced student alike. Based on a fifteen-century text, it is the revered heart of Tibetan practice, presented in easy-to-understand steps by the Dalai Lama, Tibet's exiled spiritual and political leader. The Dalai Lama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and is the author of two memoirs and several books on Buddhism.
The Library of Tibet was founded in order to preserve and disseminate the cultural heritage of Tibet, now under threat of extinction. The volumes of the Library will cover Tibetan history and culture, from meditation practices to social history. Volume Editor Donald S. Lopez is Professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies at the University of Michigan. John F. Avedon, General Series Editor of the Library, is the author of 'In Exile from the Land of Snows', the definitive history of modern Tibet.
The Dalai Lama is one of the world’s foremost spiritual and political leaders. He is the exiled spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. He frequently travels to the UK.
