Opening the Eye of New Awareness
Author: Dalai Lama
Written in 1963-just four years after his excape from Tibet and four years after completing his education-Opening the Eye of New Awereness is the Dalai Lamas first religious work. Orginally intended for Tibetan lay people, Westerns, and those who do not have the leisure to study the freattexts, this is the Dalai Lamas own summation of Buddhist doctrine and practices as they have been practiced in Tibet for thousand years. It is a work of consummate scholarship by a twenty-seven-year-old monk, wise beyond his years. A new introduction by Professor Lopez provides insight into the historical and philosophical context of His Holiness work.
