InsightLA instructor, Beth Sternlieb, recommends The Wisdom of Forgiveness by HH Dalai Lama and Victor Chan as March’s selection.
Beth says “the topic of this book…forgiveness…is very relevant for today’s world. Victor Chan is Chinese and at his first encounter with the Dalai Lama, he is touched by the Dalai Lama’s freedom from animosity towards the Chinese. The book documents their friendship and the Dalai Lama’s travels around the world, the Dalai Lama’s practice on compassion and emptiness. Not only is it a great topic, but also a great read.”
The book also documents some of the Dalai Lama’s personal life – his near fatal illness, his day-to-day practice, his fears, his faith…his personal philosophy about living.
We hope you enjoy this month’s selection, and would love to hear your feedback.
