Caring is something we and our world urgently need. We know real caring when we experience it, but our way of life-or perhaps our way of relating to our minds-seems to leave us feeling profoundly uncared for. Lacking care ourselves, we begin to lose our ability to care for others.In Caring, Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku embarks on a wide-ranging exploration of the deep importance of learning to care. Drawing on his Buddhist background as well as more than fifty years spent working closely with students from around the world, he shows us how caring can bring us face-to-face with human nature's deepest mysteries-and its highest potentials.In reflections that range from the simple and heartfelt to the challenging and profound, Caring shows us how caring can ease our hearts, strengthen our spirits, and transform our sense of what is possible.
