The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

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 in Dharamsala 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.From the beginning the book was envisioned as a three-layer birthday cake: their own stories and teachings about joy, the most recent findings in the science of deep happiness, and the daily practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives. Both the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu have been tested by great personal and national adversity, and here they share their personal stories of struggle and renewal. Now that they are both in their eighties, they especially want to spread the core message that to have joy yourself, you must bring joy to others.Most of all, during that landmark week in Dharamsala, they demonstrated by their own exuberance, compassion, and humor how joy can be transformed from a fleeting emotion into an enduring way of life....

  • Victoria

    ‘Wherever you have friends that’s your country, and wherever you receive love, that’s your home.’” --Tibetan Proverb

    Two Nobel Peace laureates meet for a week in Dharamsala, India and engage in a spiritual dialogue and these talks will become the basis for a book. Sounds a bit lofty and just a smidge dull except that the two men at the heart of these discussions are his Holiness the Dalai Lama, he of the beatific smile, and the Honorable Archbishop Desmond Tutu, himself a bit mischievous. The res

    The Book of Joy started out in an ordinary enough manner. It was well-written, interesting, at times humorous, and full of truth. But then . . . right book, right time, it guided me to closure on something I'd been struggling with for a decade. This is literally a life changing book for me.

    Even if you don't experience an epiphany like me, this book still has the potential to make your life better. You can already be happy and take something from this. You don't have to be Christian or Buddhist f

    I'll be never too cynical to be able to enjoy, appreciate and cherish the words of these two men which might seem syrupy and nonsensically naive, but are in fact utterly cheerful, lighten our load and help us put a smile on our face each and every day. I myself grew as an agnostic, and it's difficult for me to grasp the deeper beliefs of their respective religions, but for me, they are two of the finest human beings on the planet and a model not only for any spiritual, political or any other typ ...more

    I love the Dalai Lama and everything he has to say. I feel so fortunate to have his words in todays age. He has seen many horrors and tragedies in his long life and he has this wonderful perspective. I admire him and I want to have his views on life.

    I wish I could quote adequately from this book. There were so many quotes form the book that rang true for me. This book really made me think and exam my life. It was a joy to read a savor. Both of these men have lived amazing lives and they really

  • Jennifer ~ TarHeelReader

    Powerful, exquisite, full of love and friendship between Archbishop Tutu and the Dalai Lama. I listened to this on audio; incredible to hear the different voices (narrators were actors, very good actors) and quotes from these two enlightened friends. I will refer back to with frequency the helpful practice chapters at the end on meditation/thought changes. This is the premier "book of joy" I've read thus far. Empowering and thought provoking with humor and love for self and others.

  • Jennifer (JenIsNotaBookSnob)

    Finished 75% of this book and then decided I didn't need to finish the rest.

    Unfortunately, this book ends up pretty repetitive which is probably great if you have a memory that doesn't work overly well. If you tend to pick up things on the first or second repetition, this book can start to feel a bit long. I kept double checking myself because it seemed like I had already read the part I was reading.

    This is really good as an audiobook though, as the recording are the actual people reading the

    What an absolutely wonderful book. It does not matter what your spiritual beliefs are you cannot help but glean something from reading this book. These two men have the most touching and magnificent friendship. They laugh and tease each other. They enjoy each others thoughts and their ability to understand each other is what makes for such good reading. The book is filled with quotes. One of my favorites is:

    Gratitude helps us catalog, celebrate and rejoice in each day and each moment before they
