    This is an important book, but it's not for everyone. The Dalai Lama is speaking to fellow adepts and scholars to interpret traditional texts, and we get a feel for how he speaks in such situations. The references to texts, traditions, levels of mind and classes of practice are complicated, and in many cases it was totally over my head. Of course the fundamental stress on mindfulness and compassion is always obvious, as in his writing for lay audiences. But in this case the novice reader is intr This is an important book, but it's not for everyone.

But in this case the novice reader is introduced to a whole new world of dialogue about the means, steps, and ends of the spiritual journey.

    Me da mucha pena tener que puntuar tan bajo un libro del Dalai Lama pero supongo que nadie somos perfectos. Esta bien intentar se escuetos al enseñar las bases de una filosofía (me niego a llamarlo religión) y sin duda el título ya dice que es una "introducción". Ya en la tienda me dió mala espina que fuera tan fino. Es MUY corto. Y vamos, yo me he quedado igual... Si te lees el portal entero de la wikipedia sobre budismo yo creo que aprendes más.

No quiero un tratado de 5000 páginas sobre las enseñanzas de Buda o las prácticas del budismo, pero si algo más que 4 conceptos pobremente explicados que me han dejado un poco más confusa incluso que antes. Tendré que animarme con algo más "espeso" si quiero de verdad entender algo de la filosofía milenaria del Dalai Lama.

    Un libro extremadamente breve y que, pese a estar escrito por el mismísimo Dalai Lama, encuentro muy poco acertado para los neófitos occidentales. Apenas se habla de quién fue el Buda Gotama ni veo que se describa claramente la gran utilidad del budismo, tampoco se mencionan conceptos que creo básicos como el Óctuple Sendero... Sin embargo, se habla de conceptos muy avanzados, más "sesudos" y/o filosóficos como son los cinco agregados o los tipos de seres, los componentes del karma, o las distint Un libro extremadamente breve y que, pese a estar escrito por el mismísimo Dalai Lama, encuentro muy poco acertado para los neófitos occidentales.

Sin embargo, se habla de conceptos muy avanzados, más "sesudos" y/o filosóficos como son los cinco agregados o los tipos de seres, los componentes del karma, o las distintas corrientes budistas... Creo que al título de esta obra le falta una coletilla: "Introducción al budismo tibetano... para aquellos que ya conocen el budismo".

    The one that I got did not have spanish text, as the title here suggests, but it appears to be the same book. The problem is that it is practically just an instruction manual. Not too much in the way of insight, just as if you simply wanted to reconstruct the buddhist religion's practices from not knowing anything about it. Maybe indeed this was the intention, but for a non-buddhist reader it was entirely too technical and only vaguely interesting.

    Gives a good insight into the Tibetan perspective of Buddhism and Dalai Lama's views on it. The book becomes pedantic at certain places and may not be to the liking of everybody. People who are into Buddhism, specifically Tibetan Buddhism, can appreciated the contents. Others may find certain parts to be too heavy. Nevertheless a good read.

    La première partie est vraiment nébuleuse... mais les parties subséquentes révèlent les notions élémentaires du bouddhisme tibétain, une approche de la vie dont je me sens très proche et qui m'ouvre à de nouvelles richesses.

    Another MUST read for someone like myself that is a developing Buddhist. His Holiness is a great man, humble monk and a try Buddha. Life is waaaay to complicated thanks to our need for stuff. This book will help you understand ways to change yourself and by extension the world.
