His Holiness the Dalai Lama is celebrated as Buddhism's pre-eminent spiritual master and teacher. He has carried the nuanced teachings of the Buddha to the far corners of the globe, and in the process has touched and transformed millions of lives. With his ever-smiling face, he reaches out to people in a way that makes Buddhism accessible to both non-Buddhists and Buddhists alike.

This fascinating book brings together extracts from some of His Holiness's most powerful writings and talks. As he explains the elements of the Buddha's teachings and the basic practices of meditation, he also engages and reconciles the innovations of modern Western science with Buddhist perspectives. Ultimately, His Holiness calls for the celebration of diversity and the recognition of interdependence that breeds a sense of Universal Responsibility to govern all of our relationships in an increasingly fragmented world. Serving as the perfect introduction to the Dalai Lama's philosophy, both Buddhist and secular, In My Own Words is just the book for gleaning insights into the mind of one of the world's greatest spiritual icons.
