The Dalai Lama at Harvard: Lectures on the Buddhist Path to Peace

by Dalai Lama Jeffrey Hopkins

A comprehensive introduction to Buddhism.

The Dalai Lama at MIT

by Arthur Zajonc Anne Harrington

Their meeting captured headlines; the waiting list for tickets was nearly 2000 names long. If you were unable to attend, this book will take you there. Including both the papers given at the conference, and the animated discussion and debate that followed, "The Dalai Lama at MIT" reveals scientists and monks reaching across a cultural divide, to share insights, studies, and enduring questions. Is there any substance to monks' claims that meditation can provide astonishing memories for words and images? Is there any neuroscientific evidence that meditation will help you pay attention, think better, control and even eliminate negative emotions? Are Buddhists right to make compassion a fundamental human emotion, and Western scientists wrong to have neglected it? "The Dalai Lama at MIT" shows scientists finding startling support for some Buddhist claims, Buddhists eager to participate in neuroscientific experiments, as well as misunderstandings and laughter. Those in white coats and those in orange robes agree that joining forces could bring new light to the study of human minds.

Dalai Lama: Man, Monk, Mystic

by Mayank Chhaya

Authorised Biography of His Holiness, The Dalai Lama In 1997, the Indian journalist Mayank Chhaya was authorised by the Dalai Lama to write about his life and times. The only authorised biographer of His Holiness who is not a Buddhist, Chhaya conducted more than a dozen personal interviews with the Dalai Lama in McLeod Ganj in India's Himalayan north, home to Tibet's government-in-exile. In DALAI LAMA: MAN, MONK, MYSTIC Chhaya presents an in-depth, insightful portrait of a figure of perennial interest to people all over the world. Chhaya writes about Tibet and the Buddhist tradition from which the Dalai Lama emerged, helping readers understand the context that shaped his beliefs, politics, and ideals. Adding depth and nuance to his portrait, Chhaya depicts the Dalai Lama in the light of his life in exile and the various roles he has had to assume for his followers. He writes about the complex conflict between China and Tibet, and offers insights into the growing discontent among young Tibetans who are frustrated with the non-violent approach to Chinese occupation that the Dalai Lama advocates. A balanced, informative view of the Dalai Lama and his work, this biography is both a compelling profile of a remarkable spiritual leader and his mission, and an engaging look at how the current unrest in his country will affect its future.

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

The masters of astonishing military technology that enables them to deploy almost instantaneously to any part of the Earth, the Dreamland team must now stop a dangerous revolution in the making in Eastern Europe--where a mysterious group of insurgents has blown up an essential pipeline, thereby disrupting Europe's gas supply. With NATO and the EU paralyzed by the crisis, it falls to Dreamland's best and brightest to keep the world from the brink of another Cold War.

Dale Brown's Dreamland #11: Whiplash

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

Peace is an illusion . . . The Apocalypse is days away. The world's attention is focused on the historic plans of the U.S. and Iranian presidents to lay down their swords. But on the African continent, one man holds the power to obliterate the peace by unleashing terror and global chaos-and no one sees it coming. Hiding behind the bloody madness of tribal warfare in the Horn of Africa, Iranian functionary-turned-fanatic Bani Aberhadji has achieved the impossible--single-handedly creating a vast, invisible network dedicated to the construction, delivery, and detonation of a nuclear nightmare. Only by chance are American agents now learning of its existence, and it may already be too late. Born from the ashes of Dreamland, the covert strike force Whiplash is armed and ready to spring into action-led by Dreamland veterans Danny Freah and former ace pilot, now Washington insider, Breanna Stockard. But Aberhadji's web of death is wide and well concealed . . . and the doomsday clock is ticking.

Dale Brown's Dreamland #12: Black Wolf

Powerful elements within a newly resurgent Russia decide the alliance must be stopped at all costs . . . The warriors of Dreamland have moved on. Some, like Breanna and Zen Stockard, to positions of power and influence; others, like Danny Freah and Nuri Lupo, into Whiplash, a cutting-edge combination of brain and brawn. Tasked by the President to handle the country's most deadly and sensitive jobs, the elite SpecWarfare unit marries muscle to technological prowess. But can even Whiplash stand up to a covert Russian army of genetically enhanced assassins known only as the Wolves? The stories about them sound like sheer fantasy: the killers are said to be nearly invisible and virtually unstoppable, endowed with super-human strength and endurance. But when Danny Freah and company discover they do exist, Danny stumbles on an even darker and deadlier secret: One Wolf, the most ferocious of all, comes from the heart of Dreamland itself. And Danny saw him die more than a decade before.

Dale Brown's Dreamland #2: Nerve Center

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

Hidden in the Nevada desert is Dreamland - an advanced aerospace-weapons testing facility where the best of the best develop artillery and aircraft that push beyond the cutting edge. Dreamland's latest project - Flighthawk: an unmanned aerial-attack aircraft. To help pilots master the complex remote-flying skills required to control it, a high risk system is being trialed in which a microchip is implanted in the pilot's skull. Initially, all goes well for the first volunteer, Army Captain Kevin Madrone. But the psychological stress proves too much - and suddenly Madrone disappears, armed with one of the most powerful weapons in the world...

Dale Brown's Dreamland #3: Razor's Edge

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

The weapon is codenamed "Razor"--the brainchild of the brilliant minds at Dreamland--a mobile chemical laser system with a range of 600 kilometers capable of downing anything that flies. The destruction of an American aircraft over northern Iraq suggests the inexplicable and unthinkable: a vengeful foe now possesses the lethal technology. It is fear that draws a retired warrior back to the battlefield, and sends Dreamland's best pilots to the skies to determine what the enemy has and to help take it away from him. But politics threatens to crush a covert engagement that must be won in the air and on the ground, unleashing a devastating rain of friendly fire that could ultimately annihilate a nation's champions ... and perhaps Dreamland itself.

Dale Brown's Dreamland #4: Piranha

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

Hidden in the Nevada desert is America's most advanced aerospace weapons-testing facility. Dreamland is the place where the nation's top minds come to develop artillery and aircraft that push beyond the cutting edge. And where the Air Force's top guns come to test them--on the front lines of a new era in warfare... A showdown between Indian and Chinese navies in the Pacific gives Dreamland the opportunity to test their new remote-operated underwater probe. Using the Piranha for surveillance, the U.S. watches as India and China circle each other like sharks. When the tension erupts into violence, innocent civilians are caught in the fray-- and Captain Breanna Stockard is shot down trying to rescue them. To save her, Dreamland rushes an unmanned bomber project off the drawing boards--and into the sky...

Dale Brown's Dreamland #5: Strike Zone

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

In the Nevada desert, the high-tech future of warfare is being conceived and constructed at a top-secret military facility called Dreamland Strike Zone. An Asian war that would have escalated into a nuclear nightmare has been halted, thanks to the raw courage, unparalleled skill, and total commitment of the Dreamland force. But an analysis of radar data has revealed the presence of an unknown super-weapon in the area: a robot warplane with terrifying capabilities, dubbed the "ghost clone." Though strikingly similar to Dreamland's own U/MF Flighthawk, no one knows where this fearsome instrument of destruction originated, but a rogue nation possessing a squadron of them could wreak unimaginable havoc on an unsuspecting free world. Now nothing less than a brazen, brilliantly conceived deception will lure the ghost clone out of hiding--and only a daring strike on enemy soil can avert a tomorrow too terrible to consider . . . if it isn't already too late.

Dale Brown's Dreamland #6: Armageddon

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

Dale Brown's Dreamland #7: Satan's Tail

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

The beast is alive and prowling the high seas. As extremist Islamic pirates, armed and supported by a powerful Saudi terrorist, prey on civilian vessels in the Gulf of Aden, America aggressively answers with serious muscle -- a next-generation littoral warship with a full range of automated weapons systems that the enemy has dubbed "Satan's Tail." However, unforeseen technological problems combined with the suicidal tendencies of a fanatical foe mean support is needed from above -- and a pair of Dreamland's awesome Megafortresses and their Flighthawk escorts are dispatched to the war zone.But bitter professional rivalries threaten to damage, perhaps even destroy,the mission, as a vengeful opponent takes advantage of the disruption -- to strengthen his outlaw navy and set its sights horrifically high -- raising the stakes in a battle the U.S. and the world simply cannot afford to lose.

Dale Brown's Dreamland #9: Retribution

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

The Dreamland team used stealth, raw nerve, and technology to defuse a nightmare on the other side of the world. But now the darkness is racing toward America at blinding speed. With more than two dozen nuclear devices unaccounted for, the global masters of terror have set a catastrophe in motion--a surprise attack more deadly than Pearl Harbor and 9/11 combined. If the nation is to survive, Lt. Colonel Tecumseh "Dog" Bastian and his crew will have to reach deep into their cutting-edge arsenal. And they'll have to do it short-handed--because two of Dreamland's best and bravest have been lost at sea . . .

Dale Brown's Dreamland: End Game

by Dale Brown Jim Defelice

A volatile U.S. ally has fallen prey to the terrorist beast. India is the target of radical Islamic jihadists, and the world watches breathlessly as tensions escalate between the uneasy giant and its longtime nemesis Pakistan--with China waiting in the wings, eager to flex its military might. A nuclear showdown seems inevitable, unless the masterminds at Dreamland can get to the mysterious source of the terror and end it, swiftly and permanently. Every technological wonder the military possesses must be employed to avert an all-out Apocalypse--from an awesome new hybrid Navy destroyer to robot Flighthawks. But the fate of the region and the world will depend on the newest brainchild of the Dreamland team: an unproven instrument of ultimate power code-named End Game.
