New listeners to the Dalai Lama's audio productions are continually surprised at how sensible and down to earth they sound. This compilation is no exception and is helped by Jeffrey Hopkins's seamless grasp of how to unfold the material. Some of the selections are aimed at understanding international dilemmas and providing quasi-political solutions. But most are about the internal disciplines one can practice every day to stay calm, acquire wisdom, and give generously to others. They promote the idea that we are here to do some good in the world and that the time to start moving down that path is now. A wonderful primer on the essentials of Tibetan Buddhism is at once a calming and powerful call to action. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
