About the Author

The exiled 14th Dalai Lama was born on July 6, 1935 to a peasant family living in a former Tibetan village. He was recognized as the reincarnation of the previous spiritual leader of his nation at the age of two and enthroned on February 22, 1940. In 1959 he and 100,000 followers fled the country show more following a failed revolt against the Communist Chinese forces that had occupied Tibet for almost a decade. Since that time, the Dalai Lama has met with numerous world leaders and U. N. officials in a tireless effort to free his country and preserve the traditional Tibetan way of life. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and has been awarded honorary citizenships by many international cities and countries, as well as multiple honorary degrees and human rights awards. In 2007 the Dalai Lama received the United States Congressional Gold Medal. He has written many books and lectures around the world. His book, My Spiritual Journey, made the iBooks bestseller list in 2016. He is the author of the best seller, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, with the Desmond Tutu and Douglas Carlton Abrams. (Bowker Author Biography) show less

Many people have asked the Dalai Lama to address the current difficulties facing humanity. In these talks given in London he speaks to a very wide range of issues including Bosnia, racial hatred, gender and environmental protection.

The Dalai Lama will tell you that happiness is the purpose of life and that the very motion of our life is towards happiness. How to get there has always been the question. He has tried to answer it before, but he's never had the help of a psychiatrist to get the message across in a context we can easily understand.

According to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, we each posses the ability to achieve happiness and a meaningful life, but the key to realizing that goal is self-knowledge. In this book, the world's foremost Buddhist leader and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize shares readers how to recognize and dispel misguided notions of self and embrace the world from a more realistic and loving perspective.
