9780553394894: A Force for Good: The Dalai Lama's Vision for Our World
Reseña del editor:

For more than half a century, in such books as "The Art of Happiness "and" The Dalai Lama s Little Book of Inner Peace, " the Dalai Lama has guided us along the path to compassion and taught us how to improve our inner lives. In "A Force for Good, " with the help of his longtime friend Daniel Goleman, the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Emotional Intelligence, "the Dalai Lama explains how to turn our compassionate energy outward. This revelatory and inspiring work provides a singular vision for transforming the world in practical and positive ways.
Much more than just the most prominent exponent of Tibetan Buddhism, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama is also a futurist who possesses a profound understanding of current events and a remarkable canniness for modern social issues. When he takes the stage worldwide, people listen. "A Force for Good" combines the central concepts of the Dalai Lama, empirical evidence that supports them, and true stories of people who are putting his ideas into action showing how harnessing positive energies and directing them outward has lasting and meaningful effects. Goleman details the science of compassion and how this singular guiding motivation has the power to
break such destructive social forces as corruption, collusion, and bias
heal the planet by refocusing our concerns toward our impact on the systems that support all life
reverse the tendency toward systemic inequity through transparency and accountability
replace violence with dialogue
counter us-and-them thinking by recognizing human oneness
create new economic systems that work for everyone, not just the powerful and rich
design schooling that teaches empathy, self-mastery, and ethics
Millions of people have turned to the Dalai Lama for his unparalleled insight into living happier, more purposeful lives. Now, when the world needs his guidance more than ever, he shows how every compassion-driven human act no matter how small is integral for a more peaceful, harmonious world, building a force for a better future.
Revelatory, motivating, and highly persuasive, "A Force for Good" is arguably the most important work from one of the world s most influential spiritual and political figures.
