Publisher’s Description: 

The "Core Teachings of the Dalai Lama" series begins with this small book of teachings by His Holiness, the perfect introduction to traditional Tibetan Buddhist thought and practice.

This concise and extremely accessible presentation of the path of Tibetan Buddhism by the world's best-known Buddhist teacher shows how to apply Buddhist principles in our lives. Introduction to Buddhism contains three fundamental Buddhist teachings given by the Dalai Lama to Western students. His Holiness often refers to this short work as one of his main sources of inspiration for the practice of compassion. The Dalai Lama's commentary on Atisha's Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment discusses in a lucid and inspiring manner one of the most important texts for serious practitioners of Buddhism. With clear, accessible language and the familiar sense of humor that infuses nearly all of his work, the Dalai Lama invites us all to develop innermost awareness, a proper understanding of the nature of reality, and heartfelt compassion for all beings.

This book was previously published under the title Lighting the Way.
