Summary

Hundreds of wise and inspiring quotations from the Tibetan spiritual leader. 
 
“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” 
 
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has traveled the globe to spread his undying message of compassion, love, peace, and kindness for close to a half-century. The Dalai Lama: His Essential Wisdom is a collection of hundreds of inspiring quotations from His Holiness. The selections are drawn largely from his writings, teachings, interviews, speeches, and other statements made during the course of his more than forty-eight years as the exiled spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. 
 
He reflects with wisdom upon the search for happiness, the way to peace, the meaning of pain and suffering, the role of religion, the power of meditation, and the challenges of life in the modern world. In other selections, His Holiness recalls his singular childhood and the turmoil surrounding the Communist takeover of Tibet. Brimming with warmth, humor, and practical advice, the words gathered here powerfully illuminate why His Holiness the Dalai Lama is beloved the world over for his timeless wisdom for all humanity.  
 
“Everybody loves to talk about calm and peace whether in a family, national, or international context, but without inner peace how can we make real peace? World peace through hatred and force is impossible.”

    Hidden Meaning of Truth and...

    A lot of people struggle to understand what the truth is,  what is right and what is wrong. There is perpetual dilemma to distinguish between right and wrong.    According to Dada Bhagwan,  the Gnani Purush (the enlightened one),  in the worldly life there are three types of truth. One - absolute truth (self) second - relative truth and third - untruth. In this Audio book,  Dadashri has discussed the meaning of absolute and relative truth.     Absolute truth 'I' can never be destroyed,  it is eternal. It belongs to the soul (atma). The realization that you are pure soul (shuddha-atma) is eternal,  and ultimate truth. Relative truth is what is determined by the people at large. The relative truth may vary from person to person. The relative truth may help us in our development in the relative world,  but for real development absolute truth is necessary.    The Audio book presents Pujya Dadashri's spiritual discourses on absolute and relative truth and the nature of truth.

    Millions of single mothers find themselves in the difficult position of raising boys alone. Many of those boys are at risk of falling behind in school or repeating the patterns of their own absent or neglectful fathers. Single mothers, who are often the only parental influence on their sons, are critical to reversing this troubling trend. But how?
    You might be wounded by the broken promises of your child's father. But God offers a greater promise to you and your family. Roland Warren, himself the child of a single mother, invites single moms on a journey not only to heal their hearts but also to parent their boys to become healthy men, good husbands, and strong fathers. He offers guidance and wisdom to moms who want to raise sons who will make and keep their commitments.
    Drawing from the Genesis story of Hagar and Ishmael, Warren shares insights and stories of how mothers can find healing and hope for their sons to become better men of character and action.

    You have a calling.
    First, God calls us all to know and love him. Second, for each individual there is a specific call—a defining purpose or mission, with implications for all of life.
    In this classic book on vocation, Gordon Smith invites you to discover your calling by listening to God and becoming a coworker with him. Courage and Calling has helped thousands of readers explore questions such as these:
    
    - What is my calling?
    - How do I live it out in the midst of difficult relationships or moral challenges?
    - Will my vocation change as I enter a new stage of life?
    - With competing needs and demands, how can I craft a balanced way of living?Smith explores how to pursue excellence in all kinds of work and how to continue growing throughout a lifetime. He also considers four examples of particular callings: business, the arts, education, and religious leadership.
    This third edition includes a new chapter that explores how a church community can be a dynamic venue for discerning vocation. Church leaders can help sustain a conversation about vocation, work, and career, and celebrate the diverse ways in which God is calling people. From students exploring careers to elders leaving a legacy, this book provides rich insight for all who long to courageously follow God's call.
