What’s in it for me? Discover the Dalai Lama’s vision for a better and more compassionate world.
When you turn on the evening news, it’s easy to get depressed. All over the world there are wars, conflicts and overwhelming human misery. Is this really the best we can do?
According to the Dalai Lama, many of the world’s problems stem from a lack of compassion and moral responsibility; we care more about money than about each other. So how do we get out of this mess?
As these blinks will show you, when we learn to replace our own negative emotions with compassion and love, we become more dedicated to the well-being of everyone around us. If we take care to listen to both science and religion, and what they can teach us about how to live our lives, we can truly become a force for good.
In these blinks, you’ll learn
- the difference between good and bad selfishness;
- why we need a new, more compassionate economic system; and
- what the Dalai Lama does at 5:30 in the morning every day.
