The Art of Happiness:

A Handbook for Living

This book is a later edition of a compilation of a series of interviews of the Dalai Lama with psychiatrist Howard Cutler, written to appeal to a general audience and focusing on the practical application of his spiritual values. It contains extra material from both, adding a further 64 pages.

The 14th Dalai Lama, spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people in exile, Nobel Peace Prize Winner (1989), and popular international speaker and statesman, was asked a series of searching questions over several interviews about the problems of finding happiness in modern life. Cutler’s narrative helps to put the age-old wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist leader’s commentary into the context of a contemporary western perspective, making this a genuinely accessible self-help guide.

Subjects covered include: the sources of happiness; loneliness; desire and greed; marriage and romance; resolving conflict; facing suffering and death; overcoming fear and anxiety; anger and hatred; honesty and self-confidence; finding balance amidst what often appears the unfairnesses of life.

The Dalai Lama talks about how to defeat depression, anxiety, anger, and jealousy through meditation. He discusses relationships, health, family, work, and spirituality and how to find inner peace while facing these struggles.
