Two great spiritual masters share their own hard-won wisdom about living with joy even in the face of adversity. The occasion was a big birthday. And it inspired two close friends to get together in Dharamsala for a talk about something very important to them. The friends were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The subject was joy. Both winners of the Nobel Prize, both great spiritual masters and moral leaders of our time, they are also known for being among the most infectiously happy people on the planet. From the beginning the book was envisioned as a three-layer birthday cake: their own stories and teachings about joy, the most recent findings in the science of deep happiness, and the daily practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives. Both the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu have been tested by great personal and national adversity, and here they share their personal stories of struggle and renewal. Now that they are both in their eighties, they especially want to spread the core message that to have joy yourself, you must bring joy to others. Most of all, during that landmark week in Dharamsala, they demonstrated by their own exuberance, compassion, and humor how joy can be transformed from a fleeting emotion into an enduring way of life.… (mais)

What do you get if two Nobel Peace Prize winners meet up for a week and discuss life and meaning? This book! Hah. Here the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu discuss what makes life worth living, narrated by another schooled in modern psychology. I read about half - great life advice, but it seemed most was things you've heard before.

Delightful. It’s all a matter of vocabulary and our commitment to humility, to be willing to listen to each other and to laugh.
This morning, however, I am remembering the stories of the children which appear in the final chapters and I am overwhelmed with grief for Tibet.
The joy, the grief: how do we hold these two together?

Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Douglas Abrams (who had collaborated with Tutu over a number of years) headed to India for the Dalai Lama’s 80th birthday and to spend a week discussing joy and how to get there, and celebrating his birthday.

I’m not much into self-help books (this was a gift), but I enjoyed the relationship between Tutu and the Dalai Lama, the camaraderie, the humour. I loved the photos of them dancing, smiling, laughing. For those interested, there is a section at the back that includes meditations and ways that both religious leaders wind down and contemplate things. Overall, the book itself, for me, was ok. ( )

The Dalai Lama’s and Desmond Tutu’s The Book of Joy is a rather uplifting text. Despite the fact that the Dalai Lama and Tibetans suffered innumerable abuses from the Chinese government, and they now continue to live in exile in India, still he was able to forgive their atrocities. Archbishop Tutu although he had polio and tuberculosis when young, suffered the scourges of apartheid in South Africa, and had experiences where his children had to be educated outside his country, still he doesn’t harbor bitter feelings.
The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu have decided to view their trials positively. The Dalai Lama stated that living in exile has enabled him to meet all kinds of people. He is especially grateful to the Indian government, the various heads of states, and well-wishers all around the world. This Dalai Lama explained has enabled him to bring the Tibetan Buddhist teachings in amazing ways beyond the confines of Tibet. In the same way Archbishop Tutu was able to talk about his role as chairman of the Peace and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, the life of Nelson Mandela, and all South Africans who were able to forgive the perpetrators of the terrible crimes that they committed.
But this book that shared these peace-lovers and Nobel laureates’ views on life covered a wide range of issues. Central to their beliefs were compassionate living, the benefits of peace, and the importance of being a positive force in the world. These ideas will live in the memory of readers as they reflect on the celebrations of the 80th birthday of the Dalai Lama. The interviewer and writer Douglas Abrams did an exceptional job in merging the thoughts and ideas of these two iconic instruments of peace of the world in an easy to read book. At the end are spiritual exercise practices on meditation of the Tibetan Buddhist monks and those of Archbishop Tutu. ( )
