Blending common sense and modern psychiatry, The Art of Happiness in a
Troubled World applies Buddhist tradition to twenty-first-century
struggles in a relevant way. The result is a wise approach to dealing
with human problems that is both optimistic and realistic, even in the
most challenging times. How can we expect to find happiness and
meaning in our lives when the modern world seems such an unhappy place?
Holiness the Dalai Lama has suffered enormously throughout his life,
yet he always seems to be smiling and serene. How does he do it? In The
Art of Happiness in a Troubled World, Dr. Cutler walks readers through
the Dalai Lama's philosophy on how to achieve peace of mind and come to
terms with life's inherent suffering. Together, the two examine the
roots of many of the problems facing the world and show us how we can
approach these calamities in a way that alleviates suffering, and helps
us along in our personal quests to be happy. Through stories,
meditations, and in-depth conversations, the Dalai Lama teaches readers
to identify the cultural influences and ways of thinking that lead to
personal unhappiness, making sense of the hardships we face personally,
as well as the afflictions suffered by others.
