The Book of Joy

Dalai Lama

Overview

In 2015, Desmond Tutu, a former South African Archbishop and anti-apartheid pioneer, traveled to Dharamsala, India. He met with the Dalai Lama, who was celebrating his 80th birthday at the time.

Both have fought non-violently against oppression in their countries for over 50 years while leading millions of people in their spiritual journeys. Hence, they took this special occasion as a chance to sit down together and evaluate one of life's most important questions: how do we find joy in the face of suffering?

Tutu stayed for seven days, during which he and the Dalai Lama intensely discussed this issue. Douglas Abrams, Tutu's long-time co-writer and editor, documented the conversation so that their answers would be available to the rest of the world in the form of a book – The Book of Joy.

"We create most of our suffering, so it should be logical that we also have the ability to create more joy. When it comes to personal happiness, there is a lot that we as individuals can do."
