Review and Giveaway: The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World

The Art of Happiness in a Troubled WorldUpdate: The winners have already been chosen for this giveaway:

  • Cynthia Atkins
  • Kevin Costillo

  • Stephanie (@Omgitsafox)
  • Brenda Sue

Is it possible to be happy in a world marred by prejudice, violence, and global disharmony—in a time when people often feel isolated from their communities, even in the most heavily populated places?

That’s the main question presented in The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World; and the answer is a resounding yes.

The fourteenth Dalai Lama has known tremendous adversity in his lifetime—having been exiled from his homeland of Tibet when communist China invaded in 1959—and yet he still believes that human nature is intrinsically good.

But that’s not the crux of The Art of Happiness; it’s far more than just Buddhist wisdom.

The book follows a series of conversations between psychiatrist Dr. Howard C. Cutler and His Holiness, creating a guideline for happiness that reflects eastern philosophy without ignoring western reality.

If you’ve never read any of the Dalai Lama’s work, you’ll find this book a comprehensive introduction to his basic philosophy: that the purpose of life is to be happy, and that many of the behaviors and thinking patterns we adopt early on in life compromise our ability to meet that goal.

Dr. Cutler examines the Dalai Lama’s fundamental beliefs, asks clarifying questions, and then supports their mutual conclusions with scientific research and examples from history.

The result is a book that thoroughly explores:

  • Why we feel separate from each other
  • How we can simultaneously pursue individual and collective happiness
  • How cultural influences and our brains’ wiring contribute to innate prejudices
  • How we can realistically overcome those problems and find peace of mind
  • How taking action on an individual level will help the world at large

I’ve read several other books by the Dalai Lama but none of the previous in this series, which includes three. Dr. Cutler’s probing questions elicit the type of answers that, I feel, would satisfy even the harshest cynic.

I put this book down feeling inspired and enriched. Above all else, the conversations and stories reminded me our perception of human nature influences our interactions with people; and that ultimately determines whether we live in a peaceful or hostile world.

  • :: smo ::

    nice! sounds like a great read! it's always interesting the melding of principle. i think “the west” has gotten so caught up in superficially changing “the east” and globalizing economy etc etc, that they [we've] really lost sight of ideals and what can be learned from ancient cultures and introspection.

    i retweeted too!

    http://twitter.com/tinybuddha/status/5985335524

    Retweeted!! I need this book! Thx! 🙂

  • I would love to read this, as a new Buddhist the timing is perfect! I retweeted.

  • Jan Posdijk

    To my opinion the main reason for the situation in this world is thinking in 2 worlds: this one and the one after people die. Call it heaven, hell, Whalhalla, the eternal hunting grounds, etc. People are conditioned to achieve a goal in future, instead of appreciation now, the current situation. This makes them accept bad situations now with the hope of better situations in future. But what if tomorrow never comes? Better enjoy today and make others enjoy it to.

  • Elaine

    I've retweeted. Would love to win this book to give to my boyfriend 🙂

  • kelleymoore

  • I am skeptical of the premise that the purpose of life is to be happy. Happiness is merely a symptom of doing, it is not a state of being. Isn't the need to be happy a form of clinging and, therefore, a hindrance to emotional clarity?

    Also, not to poo-poo the book (because I'd really like to get a copy and read the sucker for myself), but assertions that there are guidelines one can follow to achieve happiness are questionable. Nonetheless, I am open to the idea that the book is filled with wisdom above and beyond what the title encourages Westerners to embrace. Bring on the words so that understanding may follow!

    I've read the first of the Art of happiness books and it was a turning point of when I began to understand the Buddhist principles. The Dali Lama has a wonderful way of speaking through the interviews in the book that give you a sense of connection to him. After I read the first book, I saw him speak at Rutgers University – and in person he was very similar to the written style. I look forward to hearing his expanded insights on how we as individuals can help this troubled world. I hope with my RT I sparked some additional interest in the world, myself.

    I would be happy to win a book, however I will not tie my happiness to something outside of my own control. I am, in fact, happy just to know about this book.
