Buddhism, plain and simple!
This little book contains the core teaching on Buddhism by the Dalai Lama. It includes thought provoking quotations about the importance of love and compassion, the need for individual responsibility, and fuses ancient wisdom with an awareness of the problems of everyday life.
In addition to containing the essence of Buddhism, this book offers practical wisdom for daily life. The goal of this small gift book is to improve the reader's state of mind and to discover the deep peace that exists within.
Here are pithy reflections on the need to rid oneself of preoccupations with mundane concerns and to find refuge in Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha.

A blossoming tree becomes bare And stripped in autumn, Beauty changes into ugliness, Youth into old age, and fault into virtue. Things do not remain the same, and nothing really exists, Thus, appearances and emptiness, Exist simultaneously. - From The Dalai Lama's Little Book of Buddhism
