He resides in Dharamsala, India, and is the head of the Tibetan government-in-exile.

Reviews

Crafting an original text instead of drawing from lectures, as he often does, the Dalai Lama stakes out new territory: the link between faith and science. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

"The Dalai Lama lost spiritual leadership in his own country, but now exercises it around the world. Like all good teachers, he comes to learn. He found that what Buddhism lacked in his country was a fruitful interchange with reason and modern science. Here he fosters that exchange, at a time when some Christians have turned their backs on science and the Enlightenment. We are losing what he has gained."
--Garry Wills, author of Why I Am a Catholic

"With disarming honesty, humility, and respect, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has explored the relationship between religion and science and suggested the way in which they can affirm and qualify each other's insights. By juxtaposing traditional Buddhist teaching with the discoveries of modern physics and biology, he infuses the debate about such contentious issues as the origins of the universe, the nature of human consciousness, the evolution of species and genetic engineering with intimations of profound spirituality and shows how these questions can further our search for ultimate meaning. But above all, his gentle but insistent call for compassion is desperately needed in our torn and conflicted world."
--Karen Armstrong, author of A HIstory of God and The Spiral Staircase
