Abstract:

"Written in 1963 - just four years after his escape from Tibet and four years after completing his education - Opening the Eye of New Awareness is the Dalai Lama's first religious work. Originally intended for Tibetan lay people, Westerners, and "those who do not have the leisure to study the great texts," this is the Dalai Lama's own summation of Buddhist doctrines and practices as they have been practiced in Tibet for a 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."--Jacket.
