Why should I read The Dalai Lama’s Book of Wisdom by Dalai Lama XIV?

The Dalai Lama XIV is one of those rare people, that in everyday life radiates with wisdom. Simple, humble, joyful – he always drops wisdom when he speaks. We warmly recommend any book by the Dalai Lama XIV to end up in your hands and read it. However, we chose this specific one because we know that you are all busy bees that rush off to conquer the world every day with you endless lists of things to do.

Not simply because it is short and concise, but also because the wisdom will help you resolve the everyday madness and help you realize who you are, and why the way you behave is a major impact on your life.

It is illogical to expect smiles from others if one does not smile oneself. Therefore, one can see that many things depend on one’s own behavior.

The thing is, no matter how much you love the busy way of life, sometimes it can be overwhelming and maddening – often a cause to your suffering. How many times have you laid in bed, not being able to sleep because you keep worrying about the could haves and the should haves? How many times a day are you stressed out and anxious? These are all common issues that we have all faced, and the simple solution to all of them is understanding.

As the great Indian scholar, Shantideva has said: ‘If there is a way to overcome the suffering, then there is no need to worry; if there is no way to overcome the suffering, then there is no use in worrying.
