About the Author

His Holiness the Fourteenth DALAI LAMA, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people and of Tibetan Buddhism. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal in 2007. He is the author of, among many other books, the international bestseller An Appeal to the World and the New York Times bestseller The Book of Joy, which he coauthored with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. He lives in exile in Dharamsala, India.

Sofia Stril-Rever has coauthored four books with the Dalai Lama (including his My Spiritual Autobiography, translated in some twenty languages). With lawyers of the Paris Bar, international climate experts and renowned scientists, she has initiated the Better We Better World training program (www.betterwebetterworld.org) to tackle environmental and societal challenges with the practices of compassion and universal responsibility, promoted by the Dalai Lama as keys to human survival in the
twenty-first century.

Reviews

"An important record of the mind and heart of one of the great figures of our times."--New Age Retailer
"In his moving new memoir, My Spiritual Journey, ... the Dalai Lama's immense hope and good humor shine throughout."--Organic Spa Magazine
"This gathering of insights on a variety of topics should ...please the Dalai Lama's English-speaking adherents."--Library Journal
"An intriguing portrait of the Tibetan spiritual leader."--Los Angeles Times
"'Spirituality'" may be the most nebulous word in the English language, but My Spiritual Journey provides a definition that both devotee and atheist might approve: 'the full blossoming of human values that is essential for the good of all.'"--The Washington Post
"Readers both well versed in and new to the Dalai Lama's teachings will make invaluable discoveries as the Dalai Lama emphasizes our common humanity, our interdependence, and the need for us to 'cultivate a greater sense of universal responsibility.'"--Booklist
"When a spiritual leader banned from a small Asian nation galvanizes a worldwide following, attention must be paid. Reading My Spiritual Journey is an alternately inspiring, fascinating, frustrating, and hopeful way to do just that."--AARP The Magazine
