This revised anthology marks a continuing attempt to set forth a wide spectrum of His Holiness’ thoughts and activities from 1963-1984. It attempts to show how His Holiness speaks to the Tibetan people, how he relates to the international non-Buddhist community, as well as his advice to international Buddhists, his views concerning his own political responsibility and the future of Tibet, and his attitudes to the modern world.

This collection has been made not through speculation or journalistic analysis, but purely through the presentation of speeches and articles by, as well as discussions with, His Holiness himself. The reader is left to draw his or her own impressions and interpretations.
