The wisdom, support, guidance, and inspiration we need to become successful and fulfilled in our spiritual lives.

In Becoming Enlightened, His Holiness the Dalai Lama powerfully explores the foundation of Buddhism, laying out an accessible and practical approach to age-old questions: How can we live free from suffering? How can we achieve lasting happiness and peace?

Drawing from traditional Buddhist meditative practices as well as penetrating examples from today's troubled planet, he presents step-by-step exercises designed to expand our capacity for spiritual growth, along with clear milestones to mark our progress. By following the spiritual practices outlined in Becoming Enlightened, we can learn how to replace troublesome feelings with positive attitudes and embark on a path to achieving an exalted state -- within ourselves and within the larger world.

Full of personal anecdotes and intimate accounts of the Dalai Lama's experiences as a life-long student, thinker, political leader, and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Becoming Enlightened is a remarkable and empowering work that can be enjoyed by seekers of all faiths, at every stage of spiritual development.

It would take an entire lifetime to fully implement everything (in a sense, implementing what one learns through this is endless) that is taught here. It would reasonably take months just for the first several chapters alone. It requires careful listening and note-taking, so much so that one would need to listen or read it again and again. The audio quality is mediocre (it skips occasionally, like a scratched CD), as is the narration.

Whenever a fellow human is referred to as His Holiness, that's when you've lost me . . . .

The reader makes listening to this book nearly impossible for me. He may be a wonderful translator, but he does not present the material in a form that is readily comprehendible. The pace is slow, the pauses too frequent, and the intonation somewhat sing-song or hill and valley. Compared to Pema Chodron or the reader used for her longer books, this is a disappointment.
