Review Text

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.
