Dalai Lama XIV, Nicholas Vreeland. This new book of the Dalai Lama's, "A Profound Mind: Cultivating Wisdom in Everyday Life" (2011) belongs in a smaller group of books which expound a specifically Buddhist teaching: the doctrine of shunya or emptiness. This is a teaching that is central to many, if not all, forms of Buddhism. Readers familiar with the Da The Dalai Lama Teaches Shunya. Many of the Dalai Lama's books are directed to questions that engage readers of all religious persuasions rather than only practitioners of Buddhism.

In 2003 and in 2007, the Dalai Lama was invited to New York to give a series of talks on the essential Buddhist view of selflessness. This new book, the result of those talks, is now offered to help broaden awareness of this essential doctrine and its usefulness in living a more meaningful and happy life. While the Dalai Lama offers a full presentation of his teachings on these key philosophical points for contemplation, he also shows readers how to bring these teachings actively into their own lives with recommendations for a personal practice.

For the first time for general readers, the Dalai Lama presents a comprehensive overview of the most important teaching of Buddhism. Perhaps the main difference between Buddhism and other religions is its understanding of our core identity.  The existence of the soul or self, which is central in different ways to Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, is actually denied in Buddhism.  Even further, belief in a “self” is seen as the main source of our difficulties in life.  Yet a true understanding of this teaching does not lead one to a despairing, cynical worldview with a sense that life has no meaning—Far from it, a genuine understanding leads to authentic happiness for an individual and the greatest source of compassion for others.  In 2003 and in 2007, the Dalai Lama was invited to New York to give a series of talks on the essential Buddhist view of selflessness. This new book, the result of those talks, is now offered to help broaden awareness of this essential doctrine and its usefulness in living a more meaningful and happy life. While the Dalai Lama offers a full presentation of his teachings on these key philosophical points for contemplation, he also shows readers how to bring these teachings actively into their own lives with recommendations for a personal practice.  It is only by actually living these teachings that we allow them to bring about a genuine transformation in our perception of ourselves and our lives A Profound Mind offers important wisdom for those committed to bringing about change in the world through developing their own spiritual capabilities, whether they are Buddhists or not.

I bought this book thinking to get some basic insights into the profound mind of The Dalai Lama, but fount it to be for the cognoscenti, not the average reader, even if well educated and well read. It is perhaps much more interesting for those actually familiar with all the ancient Buddhist writers cited (not much is actually told you about what they wrote, there is an assumption that you already know). No doubt it is because I am not a scholar of Buddhism that I fail to appreciate this book, but the anything like casual reader should be aware that this may not be the book they seek. I found it unreadable.
Unless you are already well grounded in this area, I would recommend something more introductory.

`A Profound Mind', what a rewarding title! While the main title, Profound Mind, is abstract a bit, the sub-title, Cultivating Wisdom in Every Day Life, supplements the main title or gives shape to a certain extent.

It is generally understood a human being is composed of physical body and spiritual mind. It is hard to realize mind, though every body know What the body is. This, I believe, is the reason why the mind's looked into deep by so many, and I am one of them also.

In this book the Dalai Lama deals with such basic matters as characteristics of Buddhism, four noble truths, three dharma seals and role of karma briefly, and no chapter explores for `mind' directly. The His Holiness handles selflessness or emptiness in details by consuming many pages instead. Many if not all think the Buddhism is a religion inquiring into `mind', and the Avatamska Sutra Clearly states that "everything is a product of mind-only". Though the early Sutras,we can easily recognize the Shakyamuni Buddha's repeated teaching of "tame your minds" to his disciples. In this context, it is quite natural that seeking the basic philosophy of Buddhism leads on to pursuing mind. And emptiness or selflessness, above all, comes first for grasping Buddhist teachings, especially for remaining calm.

We use the term `I' or `me' conventionally in every day life as if `self' exists naturally. However, `I' or `me' conventionally in every day life as if `self' exists naturally . However, `I' or `me' is nothing but a conventional usage as a first personal pronounce. That is the reason why the Dalai Lama stressed in saying that "It is essential that we distinguish between the self that exists conventionally and the self that doesn't exist at all, as it is our grasping at the nonexistent self that is the source of all suffering."

I believe there is nothing comparable to obtaining and reading an inspiring book like this one.

If you'd like to hear more about the core of Buddhist philosophy, correctly and coherently explained, then this book is for you. Buddhism is rooted in the teachings on emptiness and the law of cause and effect. These things may seem simple at first, but can take a lifetime to fully grasp. Having the Dalai Lama's teachings on this subject distilled into a clear, accessible text is a great resource, for both beginners and experienced practitioners.

Excellent read.

Everything by the Dalai Lama, to me, is well worth reading, and more than once. This book is no exception..

What a great read. Not a super lengthy book it was just right.

very good
Definitely not Buddhism "lite", this book leads a thoughtful newcomer through a survey of basic schools of Buddhism. The Dalai Lama's explanations prompt further study.
