The Book of Joy.


The Book of Joy is a beautiful conversation between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Found within the pages are soulful discussions between the two spiritual leaders on ‘The True Nature of Joy’, ‘ The Obstacles of Joy’ and ‘The Eight Pillars of Joy’ and how we can all come to experience lasting happiness in a changing world. What I found most profound are the gentle reminders that we find the greatest joy when we come to recognize our personal existence within the greater collective humanity.

Everybody wants a happy life - and our individual happy life depends on a happy humanity. So we have to think about humanity, discover a sense of oneness of all seven billion human beings.
— His Holiness the Dalai Lama

The two rise above “religious faith to educate our inner values” and remind us that we all “have the right to become happier human beings and to be good members on the human family.”
