Universal Compassion by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso offers inspiring solutions for difficult times. The heart of Buddha’s teachings is unconditional love and compassion. In this insightful commentary to the seminal Buddhist poem Training the Mind in Seven Points, Geshe Kelsang reveals powerful and far-reaching methods for us to develop these altruistic states.

Ancient meditative techniques that have been tried and tested for centuries are brought alive and made relevant to our everyday experiences.

Also included is a practical and uplifting explanation of how we can transform our day-to-day living – including the most demanding and difficult conditions – into opportunities for personal and spiritual development. By pointing the way to an unchanging freedom and happiness, this immensely readable book challenges us to grow, and will have a remarkable impact on our life.
