Many Ways to Nirvana
Reflections and Advice on Right LivingBook - 2005
Can a common person with family responsibilities achieve nirvana or buddhahood? What should be the spiritual limit of ambition for a busy professional? Are there different kinds of negative emotions? How do you stay positive when confronted with environmental and human injustice?
His Holiness the Dalai Lama answers these and a host of other questions in this companion volume to The Transformed Mind: Reflections on Truth, Love, and Happiness, successfully published around the world in 1999. Interpreting the ancient wisdom of Lord Buddha for today's generation, he speaks to us about the paths to self-realization and the need to overcome negative emotions in order to develop one's inner consciousness. Wise, compassionate, and always pragmatic, he offers advice on the many issues that confront ordinary human beings.
