About the Author

His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama is considered the foremost Buddhist leader of our time. The exiled spiritual head of the Tibetan people, he is a Nobel Peace Laureate, a Congressional Gold Medal recipient, and a remarkable teacher and scholar who has authored over one hundred books.


The Dalai Lama has scarcely been silent or inaccessible; he is without a doubt the best-known representative of not only the plight of his country of Tibet under the hard rule of Communist China but of the practices of Tibetan Buddhism itself. is This brief work, aimed especially at the Western reader, expounds, in the master's typically unruffled style, how to recognize the nature of suffering and how to achieve wisdom and "calm abiding." While this is not the easiest or clearest introduction to Buddhist practice, any work from the hand of the Dalai Lama will arouse intense interest in Buddhist and non-Buddhist readers alike.

"A feast of a book and as comprehensive and readable an introduction to the nature and scope of Buddhism's living wisdom as can be found."--Bloomsbury Review

"With characteristic warmth and lucidity, the Dalai Lama's reflections bring alive this classic synopsis of Mahayana Buddhism in a way that will inspire and inform anyone who seeks to practice the Dharma today."--Stephen Batchelor, author of Verses from the Center "Stages of Meditation is a wise, wonderful, and profound book."--Ken Wilber, author of Integral Psychology: Consciousness Spirit Psychology Therapy "For the budding practitioner there are few teachings more essential or indispensable than Kamalashila's Stages of Meditation."--ForeWord "A rigorous treatment of a single pithy source text, this faithful rendering from Tibetan was more than ten years in the making."--Shambhala Sun "A must read for followers of the Dalai Lama and an unquestionably worthy addition to Buddhist studies reading lists and reference collections."--Midwest Book Review "As always the Dalai Lama's warmth and his ability to adjust the level of his commentary to his audience are in evidence."--Journal of Asian Studies "As usual he challenges the listener or reader with his deceptive simplicity and unassuming brilliance."--Frederick M. Smith, University of Iowa for Religious Studies Review
