In HOW TO BE COMPASSIONATE, the Dalai Lama, writing with long-time interpreter Dr. Jeffrey Hopkins, espouses a worldview that prioritizes compassion and care for others over material wealth and ambition. In the introductory chapter, he identifies love as a force more powerful than technology, military might, or political influence, and praises the compassionate life as a source of deep happiness. Then he outlines, over the course of nine chapters, how individuals specifically create--and can heal--their own inner turmoil.
