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.
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.
