The Dalai Lama's Thoughts On Happiness

Updated: Jan 27, 2018


Back when I was living in Westchester I used to have to take the train to and from work.  I'm sure you are familiar with that awful feeling of missing the train and having to wait for the next one.  It's never a pleasant moment as you quickly scramble to find ways to kill time while you're waiting.  When I missed the train and had to kill time, I would go directly to the Hudson News Store inside Grand Central and check out the latest magazines and the books on the best sellers list.  One day I stumbled across a book written by Howard C. Cutler, M.D., and the Dalai Lama called The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World.


The Dalai Lama is the head monk of the Gelug School of Tibetan Buddhism and serves as a spiritual and political leader to millions of Tibetan Buddhists who look to him for guidance.  He travels the world to speak about his thoughts on a wide variety of topics such as the environment, economics, cognitive neuroscience, Buddhism, physics, religion and much more.
