The Dalai Lama on What Matters Most
By Noriyuki Ueda, The Dalai Lama
In April of 2006, the prominent Japanese cultural anthropologist Noriyuki Ueda sat down with the Dalai Lama for a two day conversation. This book is based on that long and lively conversation in Dharamsala. In this little book, the two men explore whether there is a place in religious practice for anger against social injustice, the role of competition in spiritual life, conditional versus unconditional love, and the soullessness of materialism.One of the real pleasures of this book is the Dalai Lama's uncharacteristic candor. For example:'I am not only a socialist but also a bit of a leftist, a Communist.''I hold the position of a high monk, a big lama. Unless I exercise self restraint, there is every possibility for me to exploit others.'He also argues that rather than suppressing anger, Buddhism embraces using anger to precipitate social change. In other words anger can be an important spiritual practice. This book offers a unique perspective on the Dalai Lama's political and spiritual views. And it guides the reader through the complex reality of what it means to practice compassion in the here and now.

Discovering Your Soul Signature
By Panache Desai
An invitation to change the energy that surrounds you, find the harmony that comes with self-acceptance, and, in the process, discover your life's purpose and the boundless possibilities that await you. Your soul signature is your spiritual DNA-it is who you are at your core, the most authentic part of you, your singular contribution to this world. And yet we reject our authentic selves. We allow our soul signature to become blocked by any number of emotional obstacles that life throws in our path: anger, fear, guilt, shame, sadness, despair. Any or all of these feelings overtake us and create a density, a heaviness that doesn't permit us to embrace who we truly are, deep inside. We are energetic beings, Panache Desai, reminds us, and emotions are energy in motion. When we are blocked we feel unworthy, less than, unloved, incomplete.In Discovering Your Soul Signature, Panache invites us on a 33-day path of meditations-short passages to be read at morning, noon, and night that are designed to dismantle the emotional burden that holds us back and open us up to changing our lives. Through this distilled, poetic, practical, and inspiring course he invites us to live a life of authenticity, to rediscover purpose and passion, and to believe from our soul in the possibility of all things.
