|From The Publisher*||This companion to the instant New York Times bestseller The Book of Joy guides journalers with inspiring quotes from the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu to help them find joy in their own lives.|
In The Book of Joy, two great spiritual masters, Nobel laureates, and dear friends met for a landmark discussion on how we can live with joy even in the face of adversity. His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu shared their personal stories of struggle and renewal as well as the joy practices they use themselves every day. Now this elegantly designed, 365-day journal prompts us with inspiring quotes to help transform the joy practices into an enduring way of life. This journal is the perfect companion for The Book of Joy's many passionate readers as well as an ideal gift for anyone looking to live a more joyful life.
|Biographical Note||HIS HOLINESS THE FOURTEENTH DALAI LAMA, TENZIN GYATSO, was born in 1935 to a peasant family in northeastern Tibet and was recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of his predecessor, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama. The world's foremost Buddhist leader, he travels extensively, speaking eloquently in favor of ecumenical understanding, kindness and compassion, respect for the environment, and, above all, world peace.|
DESMOND TUTU won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 and was only the second black person ever to receive it. In 1986 he was elected archbishop of Cape Town, the highest position in the Anglican Church in South Africa. In 1994, after the end of apartheid and the election of Nelson Mandela, Tutu was appointed as chair of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission to investigate apartheid-era crimes. His policy of forgiveness and reconciliation has become an international example of conflict resolution, and a trusted method of postconflict reconstruction.
