The Art of Happiness

by Dalai Lama XIV


"Life is long if you know how to use it." [Seneca]

It's easy to get so caught up in our daily existence that we don't realize how short life can truly be. If you've ever experienced the death of a loved one, and the pain that comes with it, you've probably even questioned the overall meaning of life. This book suggests that, perhaps, our duty is to find one for ourselves. We must direct our actions and intentions towards a goal that gives us purpose and drive.

In The Art of Happiness, through Howard C. Cutler's interviews with the 14th Dalai Lama, find out how you can unlock your life's potential by embracing a state of love, acceptance and kindness. Finding inner peace isn't synonymous with inaction. On the contrary, peace can be a major source of motivation in your life, one that allows you to look at your life and your environment with objectivity and clarity.
