Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0760742367, Hardcover)Philosophy or religion, way of life or way of being, Buddhism never ceases to intrigue. Its many aspects bear witness to the diversity of its paths, and its innumerable aspects can disorient the newcomer. Its essence is simple, however, a deep root common to all those searching for knowledge: a man, anchored in a moment of history, who awakened to affirm that it's within everyone's power to attain wisdom. The renewed interest that Buddhism has enjoyed over the past years, led by its spiritual and tempral guide the Dalai Lama, has made it possible to approach the meaning and origins of his teaching.
