In this book, Lama Zopa Rinpoche teaches on one of his favorite topics – compassion. He tells us that compassion for others is the best way to overcome any obstacles we encounter, in our Dharma practice, our occupation and life itself, and the best medicine for treating any illness we experience. However, these are not limited to compassion. Rinpoche also explains emptiness, karma and many other essential Buddhist subjects. As ever, his teachings are clear, relevant, humorous, and direct – a perfect guide to making our lives meaningful.
