The Art of Happiness
The Art of Happiness, first of all, is not authored by the Dalai Lama, but is written by a Western psychotherapist, Howard C. Cutler. Cutler does a good job of presenting some very basic ideas of the Dalai Lama?s for Western reader through transcriptions of conversations and public talks given by His Holiness. It is all very reassuring. It is good to be happy and to strive to be happy, because happiness comes from practicing the good qualities of being human - kindness, compassion, and tolerance. To be happy, to be a better person, you can practice, with commitment and with discipline, the good states of mind, and combat bad ones - anger, hatred, and greed. The Dalai Lama explains how to develop kindness and compassion, how to face suffering, and how to deal with anger and self-doubt from his Buddhist perspective, and Cutler puts his ideas into Western terms. In the end, the Dalai Lama describes the spiritual life as a disciplined, calm state of mind that translates into one?s daily actions. American readers who want to glimpse into the inspiring spiritual practice of the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhism, who want simple affirmation of their right to happiness, and some comforting advice about pursuing happiness will like this book.
