Description

In How to Expand Love, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, offers a simple yet illuminating program for transforming self-centered energy into outwardly directed compassion. Drawing on exercises and techniques established in Tibetan monasteries more than a thousand years ago, the Dalai Lama guides us through seven key stages.

First, we learn ways to move beyond our self-defeating tendency to put others into rigid categories. We discover how to create and maintain a positive attitude toward those around us. By reflecting on the kindness that close friends have shown us we learn to reciprocate and help other people achieve their own long-term goals. And in seeking the well-being of others, we foster compassion, the all-encompassing face of love.

In this accessible and insightful audiobook, His Holiness the Dalai Lama helps us to open our hearts and minds to the experience of unlimited love, transforming every relationship in our lives and guiding us ever closer to wisdom and enlightenment.

  • (4/5)
    This book is an excellent "how-to" book on becoming a more loving, and all-around better human being. I truly believe that the methods the Dalai Lama write about in the book are sound and will certainly not hurt anyone who takes the time to use them. My problem with the book was that I have trouble entertaining the idea of re-incarnation, and although it isn't necessary to buy into it for the book to apply to your life, it is somewhat central to many of his arguments. That aside, the book is a quick and pleasant read that may tempt you to earmark many pages to be re-read later.

    The Dalai Lama is an amazing man, full of love and compassion for humanity (of which we could use more). His meditations are simple and easy to follow. The loving kindness meditation of starting with someone nearest to you and working outward to strangers and enemies, encompassing them with light and love is a powerful meditation.
