Description

#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • A LITTLE BOOK OF GREAT WISDOM FOR TROUBLED TIMES • FEATURES EXCLUSIVE NEW MATERIAL ON THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY 

"His Holiness makes the case for unity in a world rife with divisions. Expressing his trademark optimism, the Dalai Lama argues for a universal ethic that transcends religion and could bind us together."--New York Times Book Review

In this brief yet profound address to global humanity, His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet reveals that we all hold the seeds of world peace within us: “I see with ever greater clarity that our spiritual well-being depends,” the Nobel Peace Prize winner writes, “on our innate human nature, our natural affinity for goodness, compassion, and caring for others.”

Already a major international bestseller, An Appeal to the World, the new book by one of the most revered spiritual leaders of our time, outlines both the inward and outward paths to peace, addressing a wide range of contemporary topics—from the rise of nationalism, Trump presidency, refugee crisis, climate catastrophes, and materialism to meditation, universal ethics, and even neuroscience. Here is a small book that can truly change the world.
