I read several books by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, including the The Art of Happiness and The Universe in a Single Atom. Attended his live-teachings in France and Germany, watched several symposia of the Mind and Life Institute, etc. And strongly recommend to read “The End of Suffering and The Discovery of Happiness: The Path of Tibetan Buddhism” if you are serious about expanding your awareness about the paths of Tibetan Buddhism, and how they apply to our daily lives. The book is published by Hay House.
After introducing the three turnings of the Dharma Wheel, emptiness and Tantras, this book explains the teachings of Je Tsongkhapa. You can discover the importance of the intention of becoming free and happy for the benefit of all beings, and how to generate such intention. Buddhism paths are often very practical in nature and value the importance of walking the path for the common welfare. To live a skillful life becomes easier once you understand the law of co-arising and impermanence, all beautifully and poetically introduced in this book.
“The End of Suffering and The Discovery of Happiness: The Path of Tibetan Buddhism” may require a bit more attention from the reader, compared to the other mainstream books by the Dalai Lama. However, this commitment is generously rewarded by the insights and beautiful drawings you will find among these pages.
Deep gratitude goes to His Holiness for making Tibetan Buddhism accessible, sharing his meritorious ocean of wisdom with caring words. To the several translators who worked on this book and to Jeremy Russell who edited most of the book.
