The Good Heart

His Holiness The Dalai Lama Explores The Heart of Christianity and of Humanity.

The Good Heart is a first in publishing history; never before has a Dalai Lama commented on the Gospels and so given us a unique way of approaching these familiar sources of faith.

In this insightful and accessible book, one of the world's most universally loved spiritual teachers considers such well-known passages as the Sermon on the Mount, the healing of the sick and the Resurrection. Throughout his commentary, the Dalai Lama opens windows of understanding for the modern spiritual seeker on such widespread concerns as inner transformation, meditation, ritual and ideas of reward and punishment, heaven and hell.

The Dalai Lama gives us a model of dialogue for the coming era of global spirituality - whilst respecting both the parallels and differences between the two traditions of Buddhism and Christianity, and ultimately illuminating the goodness f the human heart.
