Duration: 6 hours 56 minutes


How to See Yourself As You Really Are is based on a fundamental Buddhist notion that love and insight work cooperatively to bring about enlightenment, like the two wings of a bird. The overarching theme is that self-knowledge is the key to personal development and positive relationships. Here the Dalai Lama addresses Buddhist perspectives on how we hurt ourselves through misguided, exaggerated notions of self, others, events, and the physical world. The primary concern is with identifying how even our senses deceive us, drawing us into attachments and negative actions that can only come back to haunt us in the future.
