Cuando ya se han cumplido cincuenta años de su exilio y setenta de su entronización, el Dalai Lama decide compartir con nosotros su biografía espiritual, un texto impregnado de realismo que aborda cuestiones de candente actualidad.

Las declaraciones del Dalai Lama son como un nexo entre el pasado y el presente: relata los recuerdos de su infancia con la misma naturalidad que las anécdotas de sus vidas anteriores, evoca a sus trece predecesores en un momento en el que reflexiona sobre su sucesión y analiza el impacto de su posición como jefe espiritual del Tíbet en la escena internacional.

Esta obra está articulada de acuerdo con sus tres grandes compromisos vitales: como ser humano, aboga por el desarrollo de las cualidades del corazón; como monje budista, invita al diálogo para definir los principios de una ética laica; como Dalai Lama, practica una política de bondad y hace un llamamiento a la conciencia universal.
Mi biografía espiritual es un diálogo de corazón a corazón con una persona excepcional que lucha, con ingenio y verdad, por la victoria de la paz.

About the author (2011)

The exiled 14th Dalai Lama was born on July 6, 1935 to a peasant family living in a former Tibetan village. He was recognized as the reincarnation of the previous spiritual leader of his nation at the age of two and enthroned on February 22, 1940. In 1959 he and 100,000 followers fled the country following a failed revolt against the Communist Chinese forces that had occupied Tibet for almost a decade. Since that time, the Dalai Lama has met with numerous world leaders and U. N. officials in a tireless effort to free his country and preserve the traditional Tibetan way of life. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and has been awarded honorary citizenships by many international cities and countries, as well as multiple honorary degrees and human rights awards. In 2007 the Dalai Lama received the United States Congressional Gold Medal. He has written many books and lectures around the world.

Sofia Stril-Rever is a Sanskrit expert and an interpreter for the Dalai Lama. She received training from a traditional Indian pandit and a Tibetan lama in the monastery of Kirti (Dharamsala). She translated and published a collection titled Kalachakra Buddhist Scriptures and cofounded the website www.buddhaline.net.
