Bag alle Dalai Lamas metoder og teknikker findes et sæt grundlæggende trosforestillinger: en tro på alle menneskers fundamentale venlighed og godhed, en tro på mildhedens politik, og en følelse af fællesskab med alle levende væsner.Hans tanker er ikke baseret på blind tro eller religiøse dogmer, men derimod på sunde ræsonnementer og direkte erfaring. Hans forståelse af menneskets sind og adfærd er grundet på et livslangt studium. Hans anskuelser er rodfæstet i en tradition, som daterer sig mere end 2500 år tilbage, men alligevel afstemt af sund fornuft og dyb indsigt i moderne problemer. Hans enestående position som verdensberømthed har givet ham mulighed for at rejse jorden rundt adskillige gange, konfrontere sig med mange forskellige kulturer og folk samt udveksle tanker med topvidenskabsmænd og religiøse og politiske ledere. Resultatet heraf er en tilgang til menneskelige problemer, som på en gang er vis, optimistisk og realistisk.I Kunsten at leve lykkeligt præsenteres Dalai Lamas synspunkter i en form, der henvender sig til et vestligt publikum. Howard C. Cutler har samlet lange uddrag fra Dalai Lamas offentlige undervisning og referater fra sine private samtaler med tibetanernes åndelige overhoved til en inspirerende bog.

In 1999 His Holiness The Dalai Lama published the bestselling Ancient Wisdom: Modern World, which addressed the question of ethics for the new millennium. A decade later, His Holiness enters the contemporary debate about religion vs atheism, and returns to the theme of ethics with a major new work: Beyond Religion: ethics for a whole world.In this thought-provoking new book he argues that religion is not a necessity for pursuing a spiritual life. Rather, focusing on tolerance and understanding between religions, as well as tolerance and understanding between believers (of any faith) and non-believers is the way forward. The way to achieve such an approach, he proposes, is through a system of secular ethics grounded in a deep appreciation of our common humanity. Aimed particularly at the general reader, Beyond Religion: ethics for a whole world is a modern-day polemic which outlines those ethics he believes should be central to our lives.
Nobel Peace Prize winners His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu share their own childhood struggles to show young readers how they can thrive and find joy even during the most challenging times in this picture book adaptation of the international bestseller The Book of Joy. If you just focus on the thing that is making you sad, then the sadness is all you see. But if you look around, you will see that joy is everywhere. In their only collaboration for children, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu use their childhood stories to show young people how to find joy even in hard times and why sharing joy with others makes it grow. The two spiritual masters tell a simple story, vibrantly brought to life by bestselling illustrator Rafael López, of how every child has joy inside them, even when it sometimes hides, and how we can find it, keep it close, and grow it by sharing it with the world. Sprung from the friendship, humor, and deep affection between these holy men, the book is a perfectly timed and important gift from two revered spiritual leaders to children. It is a reminder that joy is abundant—no matter what challenges we face—and has the power to transform the world around us even in the darkest of times.
