His Holiness the Dalai Lama talks about compassion and ethics at a public talk organized by the World Ethical Foundations Consortium (Albany New York on May 6th, 2009).
The mind is central to all human experience. Whether one is in harmony with the world or not depends upon one's relative emotional and spiritual health. For this reason, the core teachings of Buddhism have always emphasized various forms of mind training. In series of his lectures "Transforming the Mind", the Dalai Lama provides a succinct overview of the basic techniques of spiritual development in Tibetan Buddhism. He introduces several aspects of mind training, combining the insights of traditional scholarship with his personal warmth and humanity.
