He almost always has a smile on his face or is laughing when you see him. And he encourages smiles from others around him. He is the Dalai Lama, the political and spiritual head of Tibet, a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, and a highly sought-after public speaker. Why is he so well-like? Even after only a short while in his company, you can’t help but feel joyful.
The Dalai Lama will response with an unequivocal “yes” if you ask him if he is please despite losing his nation. He’ll also tell you that achieving happiness is the goal of life. That our very existence is gear toward it. The issue has always been how to get there. He’s tried to respond to it previously, but never with a psychiatrist’s assistance to help him explain the point in terms we can all comprehend.
The book that established the happy book genre, The Art of Happiness, continues to be the foundation of the study of positive psychology.
The Dalai Lama teaches us how to overcome everyday fear, insecurity, wrath, and discouragement via dialogues, stories, and meditations. Together with Dr. Howard Cutler, he examines a variety of aspects of daily life, such as relationships, grief, and the chase of riches, to show how to navigate the challenges of life while grounded in a rich and lasting inner calm. The Art of Happiness is a book that transcends cultures to assist readers with challenges that are common to all people since it is based on 2,500 years of Buddhist meditations combined with a good dose of common sense. This book, which has been in print for eleven years, has inspired people all around the world and touched countless lives.
Absolutely stunning illustrations plus really well-written text including a lot of stories that aren’t included in most kids bibles. Really recommend it for kids 5/6-10/11 years for a daily bible story working through the book.

I purchased this book for my niece’s baby shower. It is a great gift and a beautiful book. Note to the shipper, the book cover had a dent in the front due to the book being shipped in a simple envelope with no padding.

Great Book to introduce your grandchildren to teach them about Jesus Christ into Season.
Kimberley Barrett –
Nice approachable language for kids. It’s written in a fun, concise but still “proper biblical” way. Not very religious myself but I think it’s a great book and I’m actually finding it interesting to learn from it too!
We’ve been enjoying these stories as bedtime reading! Forest’s book has lovely illustrations and brilliant quality.

We use the Jesus Story Book Bible for our children’s church material and the coloring pages are perfect for the kids who need something to do during the lesson.
It has been a while since I read this book but I found it to be such an insightful look at not only the Dalai lamas life but also how the hierarchy of the Dalai lama works.

This is a collection of the world’s most common and historical religions. Reading the encyclopedic text shows us that from the beginning of humankind, there has been a belief in the spiritual and supernatural. By analyzing different cultures and geographic regions a picture that when compartmentalized appears conflicting.

Super book ? mind blowing reading experience.
Best book ever I read and simple English to understand.
Totally brilliant work by the author, bringing the very best wisdom of the great Gautam Buddha in a single book
I loved how the concept of Buddha and his wisdom is explained in simple yet powerful way. I agree how spiritual power can enhance one to be a great leader and achieve success.

I loved the way Dalai Lama could narrate concepts of life that were universal to all human beings globally irrespective of the caste, creed, or religion they belonged. This book gave me the insight to view my social, family and professional relationships differently. I am already seeing changes in me and how I interact with the world around me. Love is the universal language that connects us all.
The book is really good. It accounts for the life story of his holiness Dalai Lama. It also talks about Buddhism, the people of Tibet, China, and its help to the people of Tibet.
I ordered this book for me..I am loyal customer of Amazon..as usual delivery was fast…good product..nice book..thank you Godsyou.com
This was a book club choice, and one of the best that we have read in recent years. I would recommend it to everyone, Morality is the belief system that binds society together.
This book is a great lesson in leadership. A great job of bringing focused Buddha’s teachings into real-life corporate world of chaotic leadership.
The pages are thick and double-sided. The images are beautiful and I’m excited to color with my kids
Good book for every reader. Good quality of book delivered.
This book gives very detailed discussions on all things soil. Enjoying the learning I am receiving.
I loved the message in this book. Very good books got them for my daughter.
Simple, strong and effective. Dalai lama has put forward a base with help of which one can learn to become more happy and healthy in their life.
Everyone must read the book if you are looking the ways to find happiness, for sure you will get many ways for happiness.
The Four Noble Truths are the essence of Buddhism.
The Dalai Lana expounds on them in this book. He also gives you a lot to think about!
This man can change the world. He can connect with the entire universe. Read this book as an experience. It will make you human.
Really we are lucky to read such great person (Noble) books, and I am very thankful to amazon, for such good collection of books. its better to purchase and read, rather than going through the comments, because it cannot be expressed.
Real awakening in simple words. Very good book.
Love this book. I always find the Dali Lama so inspirational. I am always calmer after reading a book by him. . And the price was right.
Its my favorite subject of reading. And books are amazing starting from packing, size, text, and paper all. It’s recommended to have such reading.
I’m very happy about the Neckless I love this thank you.
This answers the most pertinent questions regarding Tibetan Buddhism and the current Dalai Lama’s story. I found it deeply moving, at times amusing and surprisingly relatable at times.
Beautiful illustrations. Well thought out. Incorporates significant doctrinal truths within the stories themselves. It focuses more on the why of the stories rather than the specific details of stories. It may be better for families who are already familiar with the Bible.

I am leading a disciple group once a week for a family with kids that do not know the bible stories. This book fits perfectly into what I wanted to teach. The kids like reading and looking at the pictures which help them understand. Highly recommend this book.
