Awakening the Wisdom and Compassion to Change Your World
Find a new way of life and lasting peace by ‘becoming Buddha’ – that is, awakening to personal responsibility for our own lives and the world around us.
Buddhist masters say that we are in a ‘Dark Age’. Terrorist attacks, wars, economic failures and natural disasters have created an atmosphere of fear. Tibetan masters encourage us not to lose heart – catastrophes have happened before and we have managed to overcome them.
Robert Sachs shows how Tibetan Buddhist teachings can have a real influence on our personal lives and equally on contemporary politics. He conveys traditional Buddhist teachings in a practical, readable style and shows the reader how they can help to cultivate the inner resources necessary to meet challenge and conflict – both in themselves and in the world.
