Two spiritual giants. Seven days. One timeless question. 'The ultimate source of happiness is within us.' DALAI LAMA 'We grow in kindness when our kindness is tested.' DESMOND TUTU Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama have been friends for many, many years. Between them, they have endured exile, violence and oppression. And in the face of these hardships, they have continued to radiate compassion, humour and above all, joy. To celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday, Archbishop Tutu travelled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala. The two men spent a week discussing a single burning question: how do we find joy in the face of suffering? This book is a gift from two of the most important spiritual figures of our time. Full of love, warmth and hope, The Book of Joy offers us the chance to experience their journey from first embrace to final goodbye.

Det var en djupt berörande och vacker upplevelse att få föras genom sidorna av visdom och smittande glädje i samtalet mellan Desmond Tutu och Dalai Lama; ett möte mellan två djupt visa män och ledare, men också mellan kristendom och buddhism, mellan två enormt fina ålderstigna vänner som så ömsint bemöter varandra och livets alla djupa och väsentliga frågor. Den går bortanför religion.
Mänsklighet i sin vackraste juvel!
Skulle rekommendera alla att läsa den:). Den andas äkta glädje....

I want to wish all of you joy-because there is no better gift. Two spiritual masters, the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, share their wisdom in this uplifting book. I promise you, it's the best $26 you can spend. -- Oprah Winfrey A wonderful and uplifting book from two inspirational spiritual leaders. * Frost Magazine * Absolutely incredible - lasting happiness in a changing world. -- Gaby Roslin I read the most amazing book last year called The Book of Joy. It's the most wonderful book of two old men, with beautiful photographs of them laughing together, just talking about stories about humans and how they've been uplifted in their life. It really is the book of Joy. I'd just have to take that [to the desert island] because it would make me smile all the time. * Desert Island Discs * An extraordinary read from two global spiritual giants [...] The topics they cover, from the nature of true joy to its obstacles, as well as joy-boosting practices, offer a heartfelt and uplifting read, with practical advice on bringing more joy into each day. * Wellbeing Magazine *
