Summary

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER * A LIBRARY JOURNAL BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR * A SPIRITUALITY & PRACTICE BOOK AWARD WINNER * A NAUTILUS BOOK AWARD WINNER

A Landmark Message from His Holiness the Dalai Lama: Are we ready to hear it? Are we ready to act?

I call on you to confront the challenges of our era by rising up and embarking upon a revolution that has no precedent in human history

This eloquent, urgent manifesto is possibly the most important message the Dalai Lama can give us about the future of our world. It's his rallying cry, full of solutions for our chaotic, aggressive, divided times: no less than A CALL FOR REVOLUTION.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This book is a collection of near monologues from the Dalai Lama. In it, he gives a dire warning about the state of the world. Humanity's wars, fantaticism, and disregard for the health of the planet will lead to our destruction if we do not do something. But he also offers hope and talks of his faith faith that the current generation can change the course of history. He encourages readers to begin with inner compassion, seeing the connectedness of all humanity and then moving outward to love and serve others. Drawing on his deep interest in science and the French Revolution, the Dalai Lama does not rely on organized religion to move us forward but rather relies on the idea that compassion is healthier for all. An extremely quick read, and a fascinating one, this is a good example of generational knowledge being passed down: a global leader encourages young people to rebel in the cause of peace.--Christine Engel Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This impassioned book from the Dalai Lama, co-written with his interpreter, Sanskrit expert Stril-Rever, is a vociferous call for the youth of the world to take more concern for and control of the planet's destiny. The set-up and source material of the book come out of a conversation the Dalai Lama had in 2017 with four young French visitors he received in Dharamsala, India. The book calls for a revolution of compassion, which the Dalai Lama advocates for by invoking the neurology behind compassion combined with the central Buddhist insight of the interdependence of all living beings. Compassion, he says, could end the "endemic poverty" that plagues the world, which he cites as the most pressing daily ill for the majority of the globe. He also argues (surprisingly and almost in passing) that religion has failed to improve humanity ("None has succeeded in creating a better human being")-a significant assertion for a spiritual leader and one that will speak to the young people this volume is aimed at. Instead, he writes, it is people who create better versions of themselves. This slender volume is an excellent introduction for those unfamiliar with the Dalai Lama's simple-seeming teachings for improving a complex, globally interconnected world.
