Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As with all of his writings, How To Expand Love is written in a simple yet elegant style, while imparting profound and powerful teachings that, if committed to, can lead to a realization of our true state of oneness with all of life. This is a very valuable book for today’s fractious times.”  Amazon.com, editorial review
“Valuable…A generous and sensible road map to not-so-random acts of kindness.”  Publishers Weekly
“Anything the current Dalai Lama has to say commands attention and interest, and it is difficult to think of another living Tibetan—or indeed any Nobel Peace Prize winner, living or dead—more bold and articulate…Highly recommended.”  Library Journal
