"The new edition includes an enlarged photo section that adds previous unseen archival color images. Also included is a substantial new preface by Hopkins that gives a fascinating look at the Dalai Lama's first American tour."--Ash Journal "Though he is one of the most erudite scholars of one of the most cerebral of all the world's philosophies, he has a gift for reducing his doctrine to a core of lucid practicality crystallized in the title of this book, Kindness, Clarity, and Insight. 'My true religion, ' he has said, 'is kindness.'"--Time "Gives the most comprehensive picture of contemporary Tibetan Buddhism."--San Francisco Chronicle "Provides both an excellent introduction to Tibetan Buddhism and a clear picture of the Dalai Lama."--Parabola
