According to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, we each possess the ability to
achieve happiness and a meaningful life, but the key to realizing that
goal is self-knowledge. In How to See Yourself As You Really Are,
the world's foremost Buddhist leader and recipient of the Nobel Peace
Prize shows readers how to recognize and dispel misguided notions of self
and embrace the world from a more realistic -- and loving -- perspective.
Through illuminating explanations and step-by-step exercises, His Holiness
helps readers to see the world as it actually exists, and explains how,
through the interconnection of meditative concentration and love, true
altruistic enlightenment is attained.
Enlivened by personal anecdotes and intimate accounts of the Dalai Lama's
own life experiences, How to See Yourself As You Really Are is an
inspirational and empowering guide that can be read and enjoyed by anyone
seeking spiritual fulfillment.

Read information about the authorJetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso (born Lhamo Döndrub), the 14th Dalai Lama, is a practicing member of the Gelug School of Tibetan Buddhism and is influential as a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, the world's most famous Buddhist monk, and the leader of the exiled Tibetan government in India.
Tenzin Gyatso was the fifth of sixteen children born to a farming family. He was proclaimed the tulku (an Enlightened lama who has consciously decided to take rebirth) of the 13th Dalai Lama at the age of two.
On 17 November 1950, at the age of 15, he was enthroned as Tibet's ruler. Thus he became Tibet's most important political ruler just one month after the People's Republic of China's invasion of Tibet on 7 October 1950. In 1954, he went to Beijing to attempt peace talks with Mao Zedong and other leaders of the PRC. These talks ultimately failed.
After a failed uprising and the collapse of the Tibetan resistance movement in 1959, the Dalai Lama left for India, where he was active in establishing the Central Tibetan Administration (the Tibetan Government in Exile) and in seeking to preserve Tibetan culture and education among the thousands of refugees who accompanied him.
Tenzin Gyatso is a charismatic figure and noted public speaker. This Dalai Lama is the first to travel to the West. There, he has helped to spread Buddhism and to promote the concepts of universal responsibility, secular ethics, and religious harmony.
He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, honorary Canadian citizenship in 2006, and the United States Congressional Gold Medal on 17 October 2007.
