The modern world is inherently stressful and chaotic, but as the Dalai Lama reminds us here, "Under no circumstances should you lose hope." Offering meaningful advice to readers of any faith or background, here are the Dalai Lama's basic steps to enlightenment, including how and why to practice morality, meditation, and wisdom, written with his characteristic compassion and sense of humor. Meant to be used as part of daily practice, the book contains succinct summaries and an overview of the path to enlightenment, and it is filled with thoughtful tips on how to overcome such universal impediments as anger, jealousy, insecurity, and counterproductive thinking.
