For many people throughout the world, no other figure more embodies the heart of Buddhist compassion than His Holiness the Dalai Lama. As the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism has become better known over the past several years, the Dalai Lama has become more and more of an important spiritual leader for many in the West. But while His Holiness has spoken extensively about the practice of Tibetan Buddhism, he has never before directly addressed the general questions that confront the world in the way he does in this special series of dialogues. French film writer Jean-Claude Carrière's conversations with the Dalai Lama cover the various issues and problems that challenge world civilization today--including women's rights, education, terrorism, the population explosion, environmental dangers, and an increase in both random and organized violence. The Dalai Lama exhibits his characteristic warmth and clarity of thought throughout each of these discussions, but what is most valuable is his ability to cut through to the essence of each issue and offer insightful guidance. From these precious talks come profound wisdom and pragmatic challenges for humanity's move into the next millennium.
