The Book of Joy , A Book Review

 The Book of Joy 

Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Dalai Lama & Desmond Tutu 


This is a new book and a very interesting read. The authors are well known, world-wide spiritual leaders; the Dalai Lama of Tibet and Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa.  These two Nobel Peace Prize Nobel Laureates come together to celebrate his Holiness's eightieth birthday.  They meet in India and together, for a week they engage in conversations reflecting and sharing and their long lives. They share stories of compassion, wisdom and science.  
Primarily, however, they ask one question: How do we find joy in this changing and suffering world? 
Together, they examine the nature of true joy and the obstacles to joy. Finally, they offer the reader the Eight Pillars of Joy, which give us the foundation for happiness.  
I am discovering my own peace, courage and joy.    
Have a joyful day!
