“Art Of Happiness In A Troubled World”
By The Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler
The perfect book for our troubled times. This companion guide to the bestselling “The Art of Happiness” is filled with wisdom and practical help from one of the world’s greatest thinkers – His Holiness, The Dalai Lama.
How can we expect to find happiness and meaning in our lives when the modern world seems like such a truly unhappy place? “The Art of Happiness” has become the classic guide to the Dalai Lama’s enlightened approach to living.
In this inspirational new volume, the unique collaboration between the Dalai Lama and the highly respected scholar Howard Cutler returns with a practical application of Tibetan Buddhist spiritual values to the stressful and demanding world we all live in today.
With the Dalai Lama’s trademark warmth and humour and Cutler’s penetrating mind, the result is a wise approach to dealing with human problems that is both optimistic and realistic, even in the most challenging times.
The Dalai Lama is one of the world’s great spiritual leaders. The recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and many other international awards, he receives constant and extensive media coverage. Howard Cutler is a psychiatrist who has had an interest in Buddhism for over 25 years. He has strong ties with the Tibetan community and has been chosen by the Dalai Lama to present and interpret his ideas for a wider non-Buddhist audience.
Howard C. Cutler Says:
“The purpose of the Art of Happiness series is to explore an approach to cultivating greater happiness that combines or integrates East and West – with His Holiness presenting his ideas on finding a happier life, based on his perspective as a Buddhist monk. My role is to provide commentary on His Holiness’s views (or the underlying Buddhist principles and practices) from the perspective of Western science and psychology, adapting his views to a mainstream audience in a purely secular manner.”
SheSaid says: “The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living” has sold over a quarter of a million copies in Australia since it was first published in 1998. This is the sequel and is definitely not for the faint hearted. It shows how we can find happiness and meaning in our lives, even in the face of terrible suffering and events outside of our control. The Dalai Lama’s trademark warmth and humourmakes it an enjoyable and enlightening read, especially if you need a little guidance in your life. Pick it up and begin the year with a positive outlook.
