Can you recommend a book by the Dalai Lama?

Or could you suggest what The Dalai Lama’s best books are?
I’m interested in books by the Dalai Lama aimed at the lay person, not in-depth meditation instructions, or more complex technical Buddhist discussion.
Could you please say a little about what the book is about, and why you are recommending it.
Thanks for any help.

Freedom in Exile is his autobiography. Very interesting book.


Some of my favorites:
Awakening the Mind, Lightening the Heart — A practical instruction book on developing compassion in our daily lives through simple meditations that directly relate to past and present relationships.
Kindness, Clarity and Insight — A warm and inspiring collection of talks given by the Dalai Lama in North America, speaking to people everywhere of the importance of kindness, love, and compassion.
Power of Compassion — In these talks given in London the Dalai Lama speaks about a wide range of issues, including war in Bosnia, racial hatred, gender, environmental protection, and other difficulties facing humanity. He describes clearly and simply how to live and die well, and how to infuse one’s life with wisdom and compassion.
Ancient Wisdom, Modern World – Ethics for a New Millennium — The Dalai Lama calls for “a revolution–not a political, an economic, a technical or even a religious revolution, but a spiritual revolution to help us through the moral maze of modern life.”


I recommend the Bible for your spiritual growth however I read Stages of Meditation and I used some of the concepts as complementary to Christian Pray.


The Art of Happiness is a book by the Dalai Lama that is intended for everyone . It is truly enlightening and easy to understand
