This beautiful tradepaper graphic novel tells the story of one man taking on an empire, calling for truth, peace, and justice for his Tibetan people. Here, in full color for the first time, people can come to know the whole drama of his lifelong struggle. Since the age of 15, the Dalai Lama has defended his people against one of the last great empires, the People's Republic of China. Under its "dictatorship of the proletariat," China began to invade Tibet in 1950, decimating and then continually oppressing its people. Since colonialism cannot be practiced in our era of self-determined nations, China always maintains that the Tibetans are a type of Chinese, using propaganda and military power to crush Tibet's unique culture and identity. Yet the Dalai Lama resists by using only the weapon of truth--along with resolute nonviolence--even worrying some of his own people by seeking dialogue and reconciliation based on his more realistic vision. The great 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet has become the first global Dalai Lama, a prominent transnational leader of all who want to make the dramatic changes actually necessary for life on earth to thrive for centuries to come. Considered the incarnation of the Buddhist savior Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara--archangel of universal compassion--he is believed to appear in many forms, at many different times, whenever and wherever beings suffer. Representing the plight of his beloved Tibetan people to the world, he has also engaged with all people who suffer oppression and injustice, as recognized in 1989 by his being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Most importantly, the Dalai Lama walks his talk throughout these pages, as he has throughout his life, and he radiates a powerful hope that we can and will prevail. Man of Peace presents the inside story of his amazing life and vision, in the high tension of the military occupation of Tibet and the ongoing genocide of its people--a moving work of political and historical nonfiction brought to life in the graphic novel form--here for all to see.

Auf leisen Pfoten zum Glück Wer wüsste besser als eine Katze, worin das Geheimnis des Glücks besteht? Der Dalai Lama verreist für einige Wochen und stellt seiner »kleinen Schneelöwin«, wie er sie nennt, eine Aufgabe: Sie soll die Kunst des Schnurrens erforschen und so die Ursache für wahres, tiefes Glück herausinden. Bei ihren Streifzügen trifft die vorwitzige Himalaya-Katze einen mysteriösen Yogi, belauscht hochrangige Lamas und berühmte Schriftsteller, errettet eine Yogaklasse vor einem drohenden Unglück und indet schließlich Erstaunliches über ihre geheimnisvolle Herkunft heraus ... Auf überaus charmante und unterhaltsame Weise vermittelt David Michie wertvolle Inspirationen, in denen sich die Weisheit des Buddhismus spiegelt. Begleitet von der »Katze Seiner Heiligkeit«, erschließen sich uns neue Wege auf der Suche nach Glück und Sinn in der modernen Welt.

Das Verzeihenkönnen ist eine der größten Tugenden, lehrt uns der XIV. Dalai Lama, der Menschenfreund mit dem Herz und den Gesichtszügen eines innerlich Junggebliebenen. Er sei, so Victor Chan, halb asketischer Superstar, halb knuddeliger Pandabär, ein Mensch von magnetischer Wirkung, der keinen Teleprompter benötigt, um die Zuhörer in seinen Bann zu schlagen. Und so hegt er auch keinen Hass gegen die Chinesen, die ihn 1959 aus Tibet vertrieben. Victor Chan redete bei vielen Gelegenheiten ausführlich mit dem Dalai Lama. Sein Buch ist ein intimer Weg, das Charisma Seiner Heiligkeit zu verstehen.

Der bekannte buddhistische Weisheitslehrer verbindet auf einzigartige Weise neueste wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse mit der spirituellen Praxis des Buddhismus. Glück ist kein Zufall, sondern jeder kann es lernen. Matthieu Ricard gibt revolutionäre neue Einblicke in das, was wir als Glück im Leben bezeichnen, und zeigt, wie wir den Geist so verändern können, dass wir tiefes Glück empfinden. Glück entsteht, wissenschaftlich messbar, aus einem inneren Gleichgewicht von Körper und Geist. Es ist das Resultat einer inneren Reifung, die ganz allein von uns abhängt und die wir Tag für Tag verfolgen können. Konkrete Übungen und Meditationsanleitungen am Ende jedes Kapitels weisen einen klaren Weg zu einem glücklicheren Leben. Das Vorwort schrieb Daniel Goleman, Autor der Bestseller "Emotionale Intelligenz" und "Die heilende Kraft der Gefühle".

Chris Grosso invites us to sit in on conversations with beloved luminaries and bestselling authors such as Ram Dass, Lissa Rankin, Noah Levine, Gabor Mate, and Sharon Salzberg to discover why people return to self-defeating behaviors—drugs, alcohol, unhealthy eating, sex, media—and how they can recover, heal, and thrive. In his recovery from drugs and alcohol, Chris Grosso has stumbled, staggered, and started all over again. In an effort to understand why he relapses, and why many of us return to the myriad of other self-defeating behaviors despite our better judgment, he went to bestselling authors, spiritual teachers, psychologists, doctors, and more, and asked them why we tend to repeat mistakes in our lives, even when we know these actions will harm us and the ones we love. In Dead Set on Living, Chris shares these intimate conversations and the practices that have taught him to be more loving, compassionate, and forgiving with himself as well as new meditation and healing techniques he learned through his journey. Unabashedly honest and inspiring, Dead Set on Living is essential reading for anyone seeking a path towards triumph over adversity, understanding the human condition, and rebuilding relationships after promises have been broken.

Among the most profound questions we confront are the nature of what and who we are as conscious beings, and how the human mind relates to the rest of what we consider reality. For millennia, philosophers, scientists, and religious thinkers have attempted answers, perhaps none more meaningful today than those offered by neuroscience and by Buddhism. The encounter between these two worldviews has spurred ongoing conversations about what science and Buddhism can teach each other about mind and reality. In Mind Beyond Brain, the neuroscientist David E. Presti, with the assistance of other distinguished researchers, explores how evidence for anomalous phenomena—such as near-death experiences, apparent memories of past lives, apparitions, experiences associated with death, and other so-called psi or paranormal phenomena, including telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition—can influence the Buddhism-science conversation. Presti describes the extensive but frequently unacknowledged history of scientific investigation into these phenomena, demonstrating its relevance to questions about consciousness and reality. The new perspectives opened up, if we are willing to take evidence of such often off-limits topics seriously, offer significant challenges to dominant explanatory paradigms and raise the prospect that we may be poised for truly revolutionary developments in the scientific investigation of mind. Mind Beyond Brain represents the next level in the science and Buddhism dialogue.
