THE NEW #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER FROM HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA • ADDRESSES THE PRESIDENCY OF DONALD TRUMP, RISE OF NATIONALISM, REFUGEE CRISIS, AND CLIMATE CATASTROPHES 

We have entered a time marked by division. Politicians call for borders, not inclusion. Economic inequality strains cohesion. Religion breeds violence. And yet the need for unity has never been more urgent, for the crises facing humanity are, increasingly, global. How do we move forward?

In this brief yet profound address to the entire world, His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet reveals that we all hold the seeds of world peace within us: "I see with ever greater clarity that our spiritual well-being depends," the Nobel Peace Prize winner writes, "on our innate human nature, our natural affinity for goodness, compassion, and caring for others."

Already a major international bestseller, An Appeal to the World, the new book by one of the most revered spiritual leaders of our time, outlines both the inward and outward paths to peace, addressing a wide range of contemporary topics-from war, climate change, and materialism to meditation, universal ethics, and even neuroscience. Here is a small book that can truly change the world.
