Two great spiritual leaders answer one timeless question about joy amidst adversity.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have experienced more than fifty years of adversity but despite their hardships, they are considered two of the most joyful people in the world.
Dalai Lama's birthday in April 2015 inspired Archbishop Tutu to visit him in Dharamsala to celebrate and talk about something inherently important to them. The subject is joy. The two spiritual masters look back on the lives and answer the enduring question about finding joy amidst inevitable suffering in life.
The five-day visit provided an in-depth conversation about the joy like a three-tiered cake with the obstacles of joy from fear, stress, anger, sadness, loneliness, envy, suffering, to death, the eight pillars of joy from perspective, humility, humor, acceptance, forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, to generosity, and joy in practice.
They shared jokes, intimate stories, and spiritual practices which had ended in laughter as the two reveal the secret to living a joyful life despite the negativity and despair of our time. The book opens up their week spent together from the first greeting in a warm embrace to the final goodbye.
The two spiritual masters never considered themselves as above anyone else and this wonderful collaboration offers us a peek into the real lives finding peace, courage, and joy in the midst of turmoil and adversity that we can embrace into our own lives.
