Secondary Title: Discussions with Western Buddhists
Description: In India, at the place where the Buddha attained enlightenment, it has become a well-established tradition for the Dalai Lama to spend several days each year giving teachings to Buddhists from all over the world. Following his teachings, he used to hold informal group discussions with Western students of Buddhism. The high points of those discussions are presented here.
In these lively exchanges the Dalai Lama exhibits clear and penetrating insight into issues that are most important to Western Students. Some of the topics discussed are: psychology, Christianity, being a practicing Buddhist in the West, spiritual teachers, reincarnation, emptiness, tantra, protector deities, liberation, meditation, compassion, disciplining others, the power of holy places, and retreats.
