Lions Roar : November 2016
By Andrea Miller REVIEWS THE BOOK OF JOY Lasting Happiness in a Changing World By the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, with Douglas Abrams Avery 2016; 368 pp., $26 (cloth) When His Holiness the Dalai Lama decides to meet someone at the air- port near his home in Dharamsala, India, it involves a major logistical operation that shuts down a main road and clogs up the whole city. Nevertheless, in April 2015, the Dalai Lama was there on the tarmac, wait- ing for his good friend Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Over the next week, these two great spiritual leaders sup- ported each other, with occasional affectionate teasing, while together they prayed, meditated, and shared ideas. The Book of Joy chronicles this visit, in particular their dialogue about how to find enduring happiness in the face of life’s inevitable suffer- ing. The conversation is informed by their respective spiritual traditions and their personal experiences marked by the strug- gles of their peoples. Since neuroscience and experimental psy- chology support their conclusions about happiness, the book’s narrator, Douglas Abrams, weaves in the latest research in these fields. The Book of Joy ends with a selection of practices. TEARS TO TRIUMPH The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment By Marianne Williamson HarperOne 2016; 222 pp., $25.99 (cloth) We all go through difficult times. We lose people we love and find ourselves grieving. We face failure and disap- pointment and bouts of inexplicable sadness. For some of us, the pain can be acute, even debilitating. This is the human condition, for which Marianne Williamson offers a natural remedy: the application of love and forgiveness as medicine. Her approach is thoroughly grounded in religious principles, especially those of Christianity, Judaism, and Bud- dhism. What we learn from Jesus, Moses, and the Buddha, she says, is that when we numb or avoid our pain, we avoid our own growth. At the deepest level, the only way to heal our suf- fering is to investigate it. A wonderful gift to introduce your practice to children and grandchildren. Available wherever fine books are sold. paperback $16.95 tuttlepublishing.com whimsyload.com Dharma Delight Musho Rodney Alan Greenblat a Visionary Post Pop Comic Guide to Buddhism and Zen TUTTLE A whimsically illustrated guide to the basic concepts of Zen and Buddhism ... The fanciful and very colorful artwork exists somewhere in the nexus among doodles, primitivism, and comics and features figures like the smiling "Thunder Bunny Cloud Deity," a panda Zen master, and a "Sentient Bean." — School Library Journal Part graphic guide, part personal testimony, part art book, Dharma Delight illustrates how seeking the path of compassion and acceptance can be as zany and exuberant as it is profound.
