A Truthful Heart: Buddhist Practices for Connecting with Others
The Dalai Lama often says, "Kindness is society." By learning to live from a more compassionate viewpoint, Jeffrey Hopkins writes, we can create a better life not only for ourselves but for everyone. In A Truthful Heart, Hopkins uses Buddhist meditations (including the Dalai Lama's favorite), visualizations, and entertaining recollections from his own life to guide us in developing an awareness of the capacity for love inside us and learning to project that love into the world around us.
Delivering a potent message with the power to change our relationships and improve the quality of our lives, A Truthful Heart is the ideal book for an age in which our dealings with each other seem increasingly impersonal--and even violent and aggressive.
