Review quote

"The writings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama have done more to familiarize the general public with Shantideva than any other teachings. I am indebted to his commentaries, and especially to his book Healing Anger."--Pema Chödrön, author of When Things Fall Apart
"The Dalai Lama teaches with clear and forceful language."--Publishers Weekly "The techniques and methods presented here are relevant not only for Buddhist practitioners, but for all who seek to improve themselves. Through these teachings and by his own example, the Dalai Lama shows the power that patience and tolerance have to heal anger and to generate peace in the world."--Indian International Journal of Buddhist Studies "Healing Anger shows that Shantideva's teaching many centuries ago can still speak to this generation and be a source of strength to change our society."--Asian Thought & Society
