While it is easier to be concerned with day-to-day work stress, finances, and the greater chaos that affects our lives—such as terrorism, way, and intolerance—it is not always the grand plans and ideas that truly change humanity. Sometimes it is as simple as the practice of Kindness, Compassion and Love.

In Nawang Khechog’s view, one of the wonders and marvels of being human is that we can choose to nurture and cultivate kindness, compassion and love. These precious human values, he has found from his studies and experience are the foundation of true happiness and are at the core of humanity’s possibility of peaceful coexistence with one another, with other species, and with our environment.

Based on his eleven years as a monk, studying Buddhist philosophy and meditation with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as well as the teachings in his own highly regarded workshops, Nawang’s book details the many ways we can enrich our lives by simply being kind to each other and ourselves including:

- Observing a Day of Kindness
- Walking in Kindness
- The Universal Dance of Kindness
- The Chanting of Kindness and Compassion
- A Kindness Meditation

Filled with the philosophy of many cultures and religions, and touching on everything from kindness portrayed in film to scientific support of our limitless capacity for love, kindness, and compassion, this book can truly take the reader on a life-changing journey.

Nawang Khechog was a monk for eleven years, including four years as a hermit meditator in the Himalayan foothills personally guided by His Holiness the Dalai Lama; he has studied Buddhist philosophy and meditation with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as well as many other Tibetan masters, and now fills a unique spot in Buddhist culture as a teacher, performer, practitioner, and Tibetan freedom fighter, as well as being a Grammy-nominated musician.

Having spent more than thirty years in India as a Tibetan refugee, Nawang now lives Colorado and continues sharing the value of universal kindness and compassion in workshops across the country.
