Tales of Dalai Lama Paperback – J by Pierre Delattre (Author)5/5(1). Tales of Dalai Lama [Pierre Delattre] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.5/5(1). With three Tibetan tales, Naomi Rose artfully explores peace, thievery and wealth, bestowing the values of peace, honesty and simplicity to her readers. Complete with a foreword by the Dalai Lama, this book of tales will bring alive the land and culture of Tibet to its readers. Delightful for children ages /5(9). Brilliantly filigreed, airborne, cautionary tales which scud across a cheerily serendipitous view of eastern mysticism. The young Dalai Lama (the author takes pains to point out that this manifestation is purely symbolic) grows in wisdom and joy as he is educated toward infinite surprises and finite amusements by his court, visitors, and his own godhead-intuition.

“All our lives are miraculous if only we are willing to view them that way. The world keeps on pulsing new amazements, providing a constant series of epiphanies, illuminations, peak experiences. If, out of inattention, cynicism or a moribund view of the world, we don’t respond to the wondrous, 4/5. The title, Dalai Lama, is a combination of the Mongol word dalai meaning “ocean” or “big” (coming from the Mongolian title Dalaiyin qan or Dalaiin khan, translated as ‘Gyatso’ in Tibetan) and the Tibetan word བླ་མ་ (bla-ma) meaning “master” or “teacher.” The Dalai Lama figure is important for many reasons. In this book the Dalai Lama presents a brief, brilliant presentation of the view of reality in the Mahayana tradition of Buddhism.
