Ten Tales from Tibet offers ten gentle, yet powerful, lessons exploring compassion, the very essence of Buddhism. A collection of poetic re-tellings distilled from ancient oral tradition, the stories have been specially chosen by Lama Lhakpa Yeshe because they demonstrate a beautiful wisdom in a simple, yet profound way, and teach us how to nurture the singular human quality that defines us all.
Introduced by global peace and environment campaigner, Satish Kumar, a pupil of Lama Lhakpa Yeshe, and illustrated with photography by fellow Buddhist Matthieu Ricard, this is a beautifully crafted book and unique guide to opening our hearts and minds by cultivating compassion--helping others and ourselves--to find joy, peace, and happiness.
Lama Lhakpa Yeshe is a Tibetan monk and refugee. He joined the Zigar monastery in East Tibet at the age of nine. After 25 years in Tibet, he fled to India to help in a monastery there and practiced meditation for eight years in the Himalayan caves. Lama Lhakpa Yeshe teaches Tibetan Buddhism – a unique form – all over the world and now lives in the UK. This is his first book. (Text: Courtesy of Google Books)
