The Book of Joy

Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

An instant New York Times bestseller

Two spiritual giants. Five days. One timeless question.

Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships-or, as they would say, because of them-they are two of the most joyful people on the planet.

In April 2015, 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.

We get to listen as they explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each of the Obstacles of Joy-from fear, stress, and anger to grief, illness, and death. They then offer us the Eight Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally, they share their daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives.

The Archbishop has never claimed sainthood, and the Dalai Lama considers himself a simple monk. In this unique collaboration, they offer us the reflection of real lives filled with pain and turmoil in the midst of which they have been able to discover a level of peace, of courage, and of joy to which we can all aspire in our own lives.
Rezension
Winner of the 2016 Books for a Better Life Award in Spirituality

"The question may be timeless, but their answer has urgent significance."
-Time Magazine

"[An] exquisite book...An intimate glimpse into the minds of two of the world's spiritual guides, and their foundation for an attainable and practical approach to experiencing a more enriching and sustainable life of abundant joy."
-Shelf Awareness

"This sparkling, wise, and immediately useful gift to readers from two remarkable spiritual masters offers hope that joy is possible for everyone even in the most difficult circumstances, and describes a clear path for attaining it."
-Publishers Weekly

"The world needs joy and compassion more than ever before - and who better than Archbishop Tutu and the Dalai Lama to show us how it is done. This beautiful book takes us on the journey of their friendship and gives us the gift of their wisdom. A bright spot of hope and love in this world."
-Sir Richard Branson

"It's a book that transports you deep within the intimate friendship that binds these two incredible souls. And it's a book that vividly probes the very nature of joy itself - the illusions that eclipse it, the obstacles that obscure it, the practices that cultivate it, and the pillars that sustain it."
-Rich Roll, The Rich Roll Podcast
Portrait
Desmond Mpilo Tutu ( 7. Oktober 1931 in Klerksdorp, Südafrika) ist anglikanischer Erzbischof und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Desmond Tutu ist als eine der Schlüsselfiguren bei der Überwindung des rassistischen Apartheidregimes in Südafrika in die Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts eingegangen. Letzlich haben die von ihm unermüdlich geforderten internationalen Sanktionen gegen Südafrika wesentlich dazu beigetragen, das Unrechtsregime in die Knie zu zwingen. Auch nach der Überwindung der Apartheid spielte Erzbischof Tutu eine wesentliche Rolle bei dem mühsamen Prozess der Vergangenheitsbewältigung und Versöhnung in seinem Land. Bereits 1984 wurde ihm der Friedensnobelpreis verliehen. Der ehemalige Erzbischof der Diözese Kapstadt, Südafrika, hat sich am 7. Oktober 2010 aus der Öffentlichkeit und von allen seinen Aufgaben zurückgezogen. US-Präsident Barack Obama würdigte ihn zu diesem Anlass.
2007 erhielt Desmond Tutu den Marion Dönhoff Preis.
