For the first time, the Dalai Lama presents his vision and the most important teachings of Buddhism to the general public. Perhaps the key difference between Buddhism and the rest of the world’s religions resides in our understanding of the core of our identities. The existence of a soul or an “I”, which is an essential aspect of Hinduism, Christianity, and Islam, is refused in Buddhism. Furthermore, Buddhism considers the belief of an “I” the key source to our problems in life. A thorough understanding of these beliefs does not carry any nihilistic or cynical views of the world around us. By contrast, an authentic understanding of our mind and identity leads us to true happiness and a greater compassion for others. While the Dalai Lama presents us with a complete comprehensive guide of his teachings about the fundamental aspects, he also demonstrates how to actively integrate this knowledge in everyday life.
