His Holiness The Dalai Lama delineates the foundations of Buddhism in this comprehensive text. Although the subject matter is broad, BECOMING ENLIGHTENED includes practical instructions and numbered techniques. Narrator Jeffrey Hopkins is a renowned Buddhist scholar and former translator for the Dalai Lama. Hopkins is intimate with the Dalai Lama's own speech patterns, as evidenced in his measured pace and calm, kind vocal tones. Like the Dalai Lama himself, Hopkins manages to sound matter-of-fact and accessible even while elucidating the complexities of Buddhist philosophy. Hopkins thoroughly conveys the Dalai Lama's patience and wisdom. BECOMING ENLIGHTENED is as practical as it is profound, and is not to be missed by anyone interested in the fundamentals of Buddhism.
