Danielle and Olivier Föllmi share a message of peace and hope in this new book. Through subjects that preoccupy us today, the masters of Tibetan Buddhist thought—including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Kalu Rinpoche, Chogyam Trungpa, Shabkar, Jack Kornfield, and Arnaud Desjardins—convey to us their vision of existence. Their collective and individual vision celebrates humanity and encourages continual self-improvement. – 365 color photographs that celebrate peace and hope – A meditation accompanies each photo – Advice from the great masters of Tibetan Buddhism.
