Ocean of Wisdom ()

Guidelines for Living

by Tenzin Gyatso, the Dalai Lama (1935-)

This book contains the Dalai Lama’s 1989 acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize, some of his advice for increasing human happiness, and a set of questions and answers from his lectures before American audiences.  A very interesting collection of material to examine from the memetic point of view.

His statements, though obviously derived from Buddhist principles, are framed in such a way that Americans without such a background can listen to (most of) them, and think about their practicality without too much interference from religious principles.
