Explanation of the Book:

Everyone wants to be happy. Here in this profound volume is a road map for discovering a life filled with happiness, joy, and a sense of purpose. The Dalai Lama's basic premise is that each of us is responsible for our own health and happiness and for the health of society. He further asserts that health and happiness are within our reach--both individually and collectively. How a person thinks, behaves, and feels ultimately impacts not only their own lives, but also the society in which they live. If you desire to attain happiness, you must understand that the journey begins with you. It is only then that you can reach out and touch the lives of others and change society. In this anthology, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, with characteristic wisdom, humor, and kindness, directs readers toward a happy, healthy, and peaceful life. Talking about universal themes such as compassion, peace, non-violence, secularism, and the pursuit of a healthy mind and body, he reminds us that the responsibility to change our thoughts, actions, and lives lies within our power. This is a book for fans of His Holiness, for spiritual seekers, and for those interested in the spiritual and emotional health of individuals and societies.

Explanation of the Book:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER Two great spiritual masters share their own hard-won wisdom about living with joy even in the face of adversity. The occasion was a big birthday. And it inspired two close friends to get together for a talk about something very important to them. The friends were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The subject was joy. Both winners of the Nobel Prize, both great spiritual masters and moral leaders of our time, they are also known for being among the most infectiously happy people on the planet, despite having experienced great personal and national suffering. From the beginning the book was envisioned as a three-layer birthday cake, the first being their personal stories and teachings about joy. Both the Dalai Lama and Tutu have been tested by extraordinary adversity, oppression, and conflict. The second layer consists of the exciting research into joy as well as the other qualities essential for any enduring happiness, like gratitude, humility, humour, compassion, generosity, and forgiveness. And the third encompasses practical exercises and guidance based on the Dalai Lama's and Tutu's own daily practices, which anchor their emotional and spiritual lives. Most of all, during that landmark week in Dharamsala, they demonstrated by their own exuberance, compassion, and even wise-cracking humour, how joy can be transformed from a fleeting emotion into an enduring way of being.

Explanation of the Book:

I should have been born in the Himalayas! -shouted in desperation a patient of mine who was going through a difficult period. Hearing him helped me decide to go ahead with my idea of sharing in a book all these stories full of ancestral teachings applicable to the modern world, and at the same time his words gave me a good idea for the title. The concept of the Dalai Lama as a happy and fulfilled human being is known the world over: here, in Japan and in Tibet itself. Taking into account this universally-accepted truth, the following reflections come to mind: what is it that makes this person and others like him so happy and cheerful? What do they know that we don't know? What have we been "missing"? How is it possible to maintain such states of peace and happiness? Were these individuals born like this or is it something they learned? Are we "mere mortals" capable of attaining these states, even though we were not born in Tibet? Using real stories about self-discovery and the overcoming of challenges, this book illustrates, in clear and simple terms, the keys, methods and teachings that will help us reach these levels of awareness, contentment and happiness. On my frequent journeys of self-discovery around the world, I have had the opportunity to work with many different teachers, lamas, monks and other extraordinary beings. From them I have learned effective and transformative methods that help us connect with the state of well-being shown by these wonderful beings, who live in constant love and joy. This book describes my experiences, using simple and practical language so that everyone can capture the essence of the book and find out how to apply these ancient teachings and tools to our lives in today's world. If you let it, this book -and the practice of some of the keys I share in it- will mark a turning point in your life, whatever your religion, philosophy, age or situation may be. You will begin to feel truly happy, in tune with life, connected with your true inner self and even, as the title says, happier than the Dalai Lama!

Explanation of the Book:

"The key to a happier and more successful world is the growth of compassion." --His Holiness the Dalai Lama Giving and receiving affection is the key to happiness, and compassion is the key that opens our hearts to affection. Illuminating themes touched upon in The Good Heart and The Art of Happiness, this generous and gentle book contains some of the most beloved teachings on compassion that the Dalai Lama has ever offered. Touching and transformative, The Compassionate Life is a personal invitation from one of the world's most gifted teachers to live a life of happiness, joy, and true prosperity. Collected here for the first time are four of the Dalai Lama's most accessible and inspiring teachings on compassion. The purpose of life is to be happy, His Holiness reminds us. To be happy, we should devote ourselves to developing our own peace of mind; the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own peace of mind. Therefore, we must develop compassion for others in order to be truly happy. In these four teachings--imbued with the gentle humor and extraordinary kindness of this incomparable teacher--His Holiness explores altruism and the need for compassion on an individual as well as a global scale. He offers specific practices for developing loving-kindness and compassion in even the most difficult situations.

Explanation of the Book:

Simple and accessible wisdom from His Holiness the Dalai Lama on how to use compassionate anger for social transformation In the real world, exploitation exists. In the real world, there is a huge and unjust gap between rich and poor. The question, from a Buddhist perspective, is how should we deal with inequality and social injustice? His Holiness the Dalai Lama teaches that it is wrong for a spiritual person to remain indifferent; we must struggle to solve these problems. These problems are brought to our consciousness because they anger us, and this little book teaches us how to deal with that anger. There are two types of anger. One type arises out of compassion and is useful and must be encouraged. The other type arises out of jealousy and envy and results in hatred, ill will, and harm. Here you will learn the Buddhist path to compassionate anger--a motivating force that can transform the negative into the positive and change the world.
