Philosophy & Religion • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

In this introduction to the essential points of Tibetan Buddhism, Roger Allam's calm narration models the compassionate message of the author, His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Basic Buddhist principles and ways to apply them in everyday life are illuminated using two of Buddhism's most profound texts: THE EIGHT VERSES ON TRAINING THE MIND and Atisha's LAMP FOR THE PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT. Allam's English accent and articulation lend a tone of nobility and distinction to the reading of the verses from the texts. His unhurried pace allows listeners to contemplate ideas such as the deeper nature of suffering, dissatisfaction, and how to cultivate happiness and peace in our lives. Allam's smooth voice adds to the enjoyment of this enlightening listening. M.F. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
