Author information

The Dalai Lama is one of the world's great spiritual leaders. The recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and many other international awards, he receives constant and extensive media coverage. Howard C. Cutler is a psychiatrist who has had an interest in Buddhism for over 25 years. He has strong ties with the Tibetan community and was chosen by the Dalai Lama to present and interpret his ideas in this book for a wider non-Buddhist audience.

Editorial reviews

Popular psychology takes a new turn with this extraordinary book in which psychiatrist Howard Cutler distils the wisdom of the Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of the Tibetans in exile. Using both public speeches and private discussions, Cutler reports the Dalai Lama's thoughts alongside a commentary based on modern psychiatric practice and research findings. In this remarkable work, blending both scientific insight and Tibetan Buddhist enlightenment, they explore various psychological themes - the purpose of life (happiness), the importance of compassion, relationships, loneliness, finding meanings in suffering, dealing with pain or anger.
