The Art of Happiness
Nearly every time you see him, he’s laughing, or at least smiling. And he makes everyone else around him feel like smiling.
If you ask him if he’s happy, despite the insurmountable losses he’s suffered, His Holiness the Dalai Lama will give you an unconditional yes. What’s more, he’ll tell you that happiness is the purpose of life, and that the very motion of our life is toward happiness. How to get there has always been the question. He’s tried to answer it before, but with the help of psychiatrist Dr. Howard Cutler, he was able to get his message across in a way that the world could understand.
Through conversations, stories, and meditations, the Dalai Lama shows us how to defeat day-to-day anxiety, insecurity, anger, and discouragement. Together with Dr. Cutler, he explores many facets of everyday life, including relationships, loss, and the pursuit of wealth, to illustrate how to ride through life’s obstacles on a deep and abiding source of inner peace.
Based on 2,500 years of Buddhist meditations mixed with a healthy dose of common sense, The Art of Happiness is a book that crosses the boundaries of traditions to help readers with difficulties common to all human beings. After being in print for more than ten years, this book has touched countless lives and uplifted spirits around the world.
