The Dalai Lama’s Little Book of Wisdom: Review & Giveaway

The Dalai Lamas Little Book of WisdomUpdate: The winners have already been chosen for this giveaway:

  • Josh Kimbell
  • Rob Ruddle
  • Nathan Atkinson

One of the founding principles behind Tiny Buddha is that simple wisdom, when applied, can have a huge effect on happiness, mindfulness and peaceβ€”not just for you, but also for the people around you.

The most helpful ideas might not seem so simple in the context of our complex lives; but oftentimes, we make things more complicated than necessary by filtering them through a negative attitude or thinking too much and applying too little.

That's makes The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Wisdom so compelling: it's simultaneously profound and simple. It provides some of the most helpful of the Dalai Lama's teachings in palatable, bite-size chunks.

Having had a copy on my nightstand for over a year, I couldn't have been more excited to receive three copies to give away to readers.

The book offers insights about finding contentment, dealing with anger and emotions, transforming the mind, and more; and concludes with a question and answer section that addresses how to apply Buddhist wisdom to real life.

Many of the highlighted passages in my copy have come to you via the Tiny Buddha Twitter stream, and more likely will down the line.

As the book flap reads:“His Holiness shows us how our state of mind, in terms of our attitudes and emotions, plays a crucial role in how we experience happiness and suffering. With characteristic humor and a down-to-earth approach to the Buddhist path, His Holiness the Dalai Lama offers us an inspirational way to transform our hearts and minds and create the happiness we seek.”

If you'd like to transform your heart and mind, enter to win a copy! Here's what you need to do:

    I Love You.

  • I know it's going to be a great book!

  • Maelina

    When I want to know too much, want to do too much, and become overwhelmed by it all, I remember these lyrics:

    Slow down, you move too fast.
    You got to make the morning last.
    Just kicking down the cobble stones.
    Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.

    Ba da, Ba da, Ba da, Ba da…Feelin' Groovy.

    Hello lamp-post,
    What cha knowin'?
    I've come to watch your flowers growin'.
    Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?
    Doot-in' doo-doo,
    Feelin' groovy.

    I've got no deeds to do,
    No promises to keep.
    I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
    Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
    Life, I love you,
    All is groovy.

    -Simon and Garfunkel: “59th Street Brigade Song”

    Let's all dedicate this song to the Dalai Lama!

  • Benjirowell

    I am yet to be blessed by the wisdom of the great Dalai Lama, and I've only recently started reading in to philosophy.

    When I was unemployed for months and months, it'd be my books on meditation that I'd bring to the river bench with me.. Watching the water and listening to the seed pods crack and pop above my head kept me grounded and hopeful. I was able to enjoy the dog walkers and be reminded that “this too shall pass”.

  • Shannon Calvert

    I'm in the middle of an exciting but overwhelming move. I took a moment to check my emails and almost didn't read tinybuddha this time. However, I remembered that it is at such times of overwhelm that I need to check in with myself and see if the “tapes” I am running are consistent with the way I want to live. tinybuddha is often a good reminder. Thanks!

  • I am deffinately interested in a copy of the book. I am currently trying to better myself as well as trying to discover my belief system spiritually/religiously. I have started to discover that i may be non-denominational and that may different positive influences help internally in their own ways. I do have slight issuse with negativity and anger that i want to push away from me. Natural healing is my preferance. I have a strong feeling this book will help me on my journey.

    I love to go to the Peace Abbey In Sherborn, MA. It's very beautiful and calming. There are stones outside with quotes about peace from Gandhi, John Lennon, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King Jr., Dorothy Day, Buddha, Archbishop Oscar Romero, etc. It shows that all religions place a high regard for peace.

    Though I've not yet read this book, the Dalai Lama's writings are some of the most enlightened and enjoyable in contemporary literature.

    As a person coming face to face with their own immortality via medical diagnosis, I could use a little book of wisdom and serenity to face the coming months. Peace to all.

    I was blessed to be able to hear His Holiness several years ago at the University at Buffalo. His presence filled the space (and a large space indeed!). I was touched both by his wisdom as well as his humor. I have watched interviews with him and read his words. I know that I would enjoy this book, which I would also share with my husband and friends. So it would benefit several people directly.
