In The Art of Happiness, the Dalai Lama brought to an enthusiastic and grateful public his philosophy on achieving a happy life. A collaboration with a Western psychiatrist, it was the the Dalai Lama s first inspirational book for a Western audience. Through meditations, stories and the convergence of Buddhism and psychology, the Dalai Lama showed how to deal with day-to-day depression, anxiety, anger, jealousy, or just a bad mood day. He discussed relationships, health, family and work and showed us how to ride through life s obstacles on a deep and abiding inner source of peace.

The Essence of Happiness makes it possible to access the Dalai Lamai s essential tenets of happiness anywhere, anytime. The perfect gift, it is also a perfect companion to The Art of Happiness.
