The first is external. By obtaining better clothes, better shelter, and better friends we can find a certain measure of happiness and satisfaction. The second is through mental development, which yields inner happiness. However, these two approaches are not equally viable. External happiness cannot last long without its counterpart.... However, if you have peace of mind you can find happiness even under the most difficult circumstances.As he has in previous books (An Open Heart, The Art of Happiness), the Dalai Lama reminds us that developing peace of mind means paying attention to our daily attitudes and choices as well as taking the time to meditate and be prayerful. The six-part book covers Buddhist meditation techniques and visualization exercises as well as daily thoughts and actions that foster morality and wisdom. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am happy with it as this book is very easy to read and understand.
This book by H.H. the Dalai Lama may be read by those wishing an introduction to Tibetan Buddhism and by those wishing to begin or develop their practice.
This book helps you cultivate selfless love, begin meditating (something I couldn't understand before this book), and ultimately live a better life.
I'm greatly enjoying the book however, i ordered it brand new and it showed up with damage to the spine.Published 10 days ago by winter jazmine
