A Tibetan spiritual leader's guide to dealing with everyday human problems and achieving happiness. It addresses issues such as: the sources of happiness; desire and greed; marriage and romance; resolving conflict; facing our suffering; overcoming anxiety; anger and hatred; and finding balance.

In this unique and important book, one of the world's great spiritual leaders offers his practical wisdom and advice on how we can overcome everyday human problems and achieve lasting happiness.

The Art of Happiness is a highly accessible guide for a western audience, combining the Dalai Lama's eastern spiritual tradition with Dr. Howard C. Cutler's western perspective. Covering all key areas of human experience, they apply the principles of Tibetan Buddhism to everyday problems and reveal how one can find balance and complete mental and spiritual freedom.

For the many who wish to understand more about the Dalai Lama's approach to living, there has never been a book that brings his beliefs so vividly into the real world.

About the Author

DALAI LAMA: Born in 1935 into a farming family in northeastern Tibet, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama was recognised early in his life as a reincarnation of the thirteenth Dalai Lama. By age four, he was enthroned in Lhasa. During the 1950s, the political stability of Tibet was threatened when China s People s Liberation Army entered the country and established a military presence. Increased tensions put the life of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama in danger, and in 1959, he fled the country at night to Dharamsala, India, where he established the Tibetan government in exile.

HOWARD CUTLER, M.D. is an author, speaker, and pyschiatrist. He is a diplomat of The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and is on the editorial board of The American Journal of Psychotherapy. Dr. Cutler's field of special interest is the science of human happiness, and he currently lectures and offers workshops on this topic in cities throughout the U.S. He met the Dalai Lama in 1982 while visiting India on a research grant to study Tibetan Medicine, and has spent many years discussing the subject of this book.

        Comments about The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living:

        It is a fantastic read from front to back, then it is useful to keep to refer back to reverent sections when required. It would be an insight to any age, whether you are spiritual or a non believer there is something to be found to enhance your own life experiences & that of others.

        It is easy to understand even though it can get deep & re-reading is sometimes necessary to develop get good handle on the concepts.

        Truly a must read if your ready to take a true look at yourself & be truthfully honest you should end the book a better more calmer you!
