Have You Heard About... The Wisdom of Compassion

… the importance of consideration for others in our busy world? I just finished The Wisdom of Compassion by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Victor Chan. It’s one of our new books and an excellent choice if you are struggling with understanding compassion.

It is set up a little different than other books by the Dalai Lama in that it is very story like. By that I mean it isn’t purely didactic but reads like a novel with a main character who keeps injecting knowledge by his actions, words, and interchanges with other world leaders and many interesting people I never even heard of. Here is a “humble monk” as he calls himself who never proselytizes about Buddhism but imparts his worldly wisdom in a way that everyone can accept and enjoy.
