How to See Yourself
How to See Yourself As You Really Are
By His Holiness the Dalai Lama, translated by Jeffrey Hopkins, PhD.
I first read this book a few years ago, knowing that I would have to read it a few more times in order to really understand it. Just last week, I picked it up again.
How to See Yourself gives very clear instructions for meditation. But even more, the Dalai Lama explains the many levels of the Mind, where our thoughts come from, how our thoughts influence our perspective of ourselves and others, and how simple meditation practices can lead us to our own inner peace. From this platform of inner peace, we are authentically more compassionate to others.
As the Dalai Lama has said on so many occasions, world peace is really an expression of each individual’s own peace, harmony and compassion. How do we make the leap from this great idea into a reality? Here is the instruction book!

When I saw his Holiness this summer it was amazing to be in a major arena with so many individuals focusing on loving kindness. It was humbling and hard to imagine myself living up to such kindness. Then I remember his words: “the most important thing is that in your heart you have a sincere desire to be a better person”.
Thanks Christina – what an incredible experience to be a part of. And thanks for the reminder to just relax into the process rather than to strive for perfection.
I always appreciate your comments, thanks so much.
