In The World of Tibetan Buddhism, translated and edited by Geshe Thupten Jinpa, the Dalai Lama, offers a clear and penetrating overview of Tibetan Buddhist practice from the Four Noble Truths to Highest Yoga Tantra.
In this book, the Dalai Lama asks us to be mindful and present in the moment and to be constantly vigilant in monitoring our attitudes, actions and motivations. He goes on to ask us to engage in personal research on our own mental functioning and to examine the possibility of making some positive changes within ourselves (p. vii).
Recipient of the 1989 Nobel Prize for Peace, the Dalai Lama is highly respected by Tibetan Buddhists and their supporters as one of their greatest spiritual teachers.
