The Dalai Lama has often said "Kindness is society"; here his former translator writes that by learning to live from a more compassionate viewpoint, we can create a better life not only for ourselves but for everyone. Jeffrey Hopkins uses Buddhist meditations—including the Dalai Lama's favorite—as well as visualizations and entertaining recollections from his own journey to help readers develop an awareness of the capacity for love within each of us, and how to project that love into the world.
"In six unobstructed steps [the author] offers a clear how-to meditation manual on cultivating compassion, a major theme found in all Buddhist traditions. This book is refreshingly jargon-free, with everyday life applications."—Publishers Weekly
