The Buddha Nature- Death and Eternal Soul in Buddhism
Buddha Nature is a very complex topic in Tibetan Buddhism. Not many books deal with this topic and an even smaller number present this concept in perspective to Christian ideas of self, immortality, and eternal soul.
For the first time, the Dalai Lama presents views concerning the Self in Buddhism. In the process, he explains how Buddhist teachings differentiate the person and the eternal soul. At the same time, he explains his ideas of Nirvana. A fascinating synthesis of individuality and universality arises, one that could only be formed by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama.
An inspiring book that encourages religious and spiritual dialogue.
