The Book of Compassion




In the style of the international bestseller The Book of Joy, two Nobel Peace Prize laureates reveal their vision for a compassionate world.

TWO NOBEL PEACE PRIZE LAUREATES. ONE SHARED GOAL.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama and celebrated children's rights activist Kailaish Satyarthi discuss how to cultivate compassion and why honest concern for others is the key factor in improving our day-to-day lives.

At the heart of our world’s most pressing problems from inequalities to injustice to climate change, lies simple human behaviour, and our ability to choose – whether to act, or not, towards the greater good. When you are warm-hearted, there is no room for anger, jealousy or insecurity. These two globally renowned spiritual and moral leaders reveal their vision for a globalized compassion that promotes freedom, joy and inner peace.

The source of a happy life and a better world is within us. Together we can make a difference.
