    Inhaltsangabe

    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 80s, 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.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, interviewed by Douglas Abrams, give enlightening advice on how to achieve joy even during difficult times. Douglas Abrams is both an excellent author and interviewer who knows how to present a question most effectively and how to relay the answers of these widely respected spiritual leaders clearly and informatively. All three voices are differentiated beautifully, with Francois Chau channeling the Dalai Lama's peacefulness and Peter Francis James providing a judicious tone to represent Desmond Tutu. These two Nobel Prize winners teach joy by sharing their own journeys and practices. The narration makes listeners feel like they're in the same room as these wise men, welcomed and at peace. The pillars of joy are clearly outlined and explained." (AudioFile magazine)

    Das beste Buch.

    Was ist denn das Ziel des Lebens, viele werden sagen dass es darum geht Glück zu finden und Schmerz zu vermeiden, aber wie geht man damit um in einer Welt die sich ständig verändert und in der Schmerz unumgänglich ist?
    Und ist es möglich Glück zu finden was lange währt und unabhängig von allen äußeren Umständen besteht?
    Die Antwort auf diese Fragen und viele andere liefern diese wundervolle Menschen auf simple und verständliche Art in einem Buch das voller Weisheit und Liebe gefühlt ist das aber nicht davor scheut die Welt wie sie wirklich ist zu sehen

    Für mich ein Buch das jeder Mensch einmal im Leben lesen sollte und ich werde es sicherlich jedem empfehlen der mir wichtig ist und auch sonst allen anderen

    10/5 Sterne
