The fourth volume of the Dalai Lama’s definitive Library of Wisdom and Compassion series, now in paperback. Delve into the substance of spiritual practice in Following in the Buddha’s Footsteps, the fourth volume in the Dalai Lama’s definitive series on the path to awakening. His Holiness discusses the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, why they are reliable guides on the path, and how to relate to them. He then describes the three essential higher trainings in ethical conduct, concentration, and wisdom that are common to all Buddhist traditions, showing us how to live a life free of harm to self or others and how to develop single-pointed concentration and the higher states of concentration available to earnest practitioners. The chapters on wisdom are in-depth teachings on the noble eightfold path and the four establishments of mindfulness for developing greater awareness and understanding of our body, feelings, mind, and other phenomena. Together these topics form the core of Buddhist practice.

This is a book to treasure and refer to repeatedly as you begin the path, progress on it, and approach the final goal of nirvana.
