Summary

The Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, and Douglas Abrams is a nonfiction meditation on enduring joy. It focuses on ways to cultivate joy in the face of widespread human suffering on both personal and collective levels. On the occasion of the Dalai Lama's 80th birthday in 2015, the Dalai Lama and Tutu agreed to meet in Dharamsala, India, where the Dalai Lama has lived in exile for more than five decades. There, they convened a dialogue on joy, which they describe as the fundamental nature of all human beings. The exchange was filmed and attended by Mpho Tutu, Tutu's daughter, and Thupten Jinpa, the Dalai Lama's translator. The purpose of presenting this days-long conversation in book format was to offer these sentiments as a gift with the hope that others will be inspired to take the teachings of Tutu and the Dalai Lama to heart.
