Overview

The newest volume in the bestselling series from the Dalai Lama.

The fourth volume of the Dalai Lama’s definitive series on the path to awakening, Following in the Buddha’s Footsteps, delves into the substance of spiritual practice. You’ll first hear His Holiness’s explanation of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha; why they are reliable guides on the path; and how to relate to them. His Holiness then describes the three essential trainings common to all Buddhist traditions: the higher trainings in ethical conduct, concentration, and wisdom. The chapters on ethical conduct show us how to live a life free of harm to self or others. Chapters on concentration give us detailed instructions on how to develop single-pointed concentration as well as the higher states of concentration available to an earnest practitioner. The chapters on wisdom contain in-depth teachings on the noble eightfold path and the four establishments of mindfulness for developing greater awareness and understanding of our body, feelings, mind, and other phenomena. Together, these topics form the core of Buddhist practice.

This is a book to treasure and refer to repeatedly as you begin the path, progress on it, and near the final goal of nirvana.

About the Author

Groomed to be a Buddhist scholar monk and the leader of his people, his life changed dramatically when his homeland was occupied by Chinese Communist forces in the 1950s. Fleeing to India with thousands of his fellow Tibetans, he helped reestablish cultural institutions in exile and went on to become an inspiration and force for peace worldwide for his unyielding commitment to nonviolence, dialogue, and universal ethics. Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, he is the now in his eighties and continues to travel and teach extensively.
