Dalai Lama & Desmond Tutu: The Book of Joy Book Summary
The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World
Despite their hardships—or, as they would say, because of them—they are two of the most joyful people on the planet. In April , Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering? They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our time and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy. This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecendented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye.
Come, Holy Spirit. Fill the hearts of thy faithful people and kindle in them the fire of thy love. Send forth thy spirit and they shall be made new and thou shalt renew the face of the earth. I then asked the Dalai Lama to share his hopes for our time together. He sat back and rubbed his hands.
