Description About the author Contents
 
Leadership. Power. Responsibility. From Sun Tzu to Plato to Machiavelli, sages east and west have advised kings and rulers on how to lead. Their motivations and techniques have varied, but one thing they all have had in common is that their advice has been as relevant to the millions who have read their works as it has been to the few kings and princes they were, on the surface, addressed to. The nineteenth-century Buddhist monk and luminary Jamgon Mipham's letter to the king of Derge, whose small kingdom straddled China and Tibet during a particularly turbulent period, is similar in the universality of its message.
This work, however, is unique in that it stresses compassion, impartiality, self-control, and virtue as essential for long-lasting success - whether as a leader or an individual trying to live a meaningful life. Mipham's historic contribution to ethics and governance, until now little studied outside of Buddhist circles, teaches us the importance of protecting life, fair taxation, environmental sustainability, aiding the poor, and freedom of religion. Both present-day leaders and those they lead will find this classic work, finally available in English, profoundly illuminating on political, societal, and personal levels.
