This is a collection of thoughts on life, death and rebirth from the Dalai Lama. Illustrated throughout with full-colour photographs, it is a follow-up to his book, The Art of Living. The book reveals His Holiness the Dalai Lama's thoughts on various important subjects: the world today; the different world views of faith; science and religion; and the nature of life, death and rebirth. The first section of the book is autobiographical, providing an intimate personal portrait of the Dalai Lama in his own words, discussing his studies, the invasion of Tibet, his meeting with Mao, and his views on everything from travelling in China, to his perspective on Gandhi.
