ALL YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW FROM HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA ON HAPPINESS, LIFE, LIVING, AND MUCH MORE His Holiness the Dalai Lama describes himself as 'a simple Buddhist monk.' However to millions of people around the world, he embodies the highest human aspiration- to be happy. His messages of compassion, altruism, and peace are articulated in a unique secular ethic and supported with techniques and practices that can help us achieve these ideals. Eliciting global respect and admiration, he is both a prophet and a statesman for our troubled times, yet he's intensely human and accessible. He's an inspiration to millions, yet many feel as if he touches and speaks to them personally. He is a Buddhist but belongs to all humanity. This remarkable book is an edited compilation of mostly personal conversations spanning more than 25 years between the Dalai Lama and Rajiv Mehrotra , one of his early disciples who's now the trustee and secretary of the Foundation for Universal Responsibility, which was established with the funds from the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to His Holiness in 1989. Here, the Dalai Lama is a teacher to spiritual aspirant; a divine master and a temporal leader; an ambassador for Tibet and a lovable guru-philosopher to the whole world; a practitioner of the 2,500-year-old teachings of Buddhism; and an intense practitioner of mind training, as well as an inveterate optimist. Within these pages, Dalai Lama's disarming candor, his deep empathy for his student's quest, and his wisdom-garnered not just form texts and scriptures but also from an active engagement with life-offer invaluable insights to us all on how we may find true happiness.
