Summary

Where does happiness come from? How is it possible, in the face of suffering and loss, to remain responsive and compassionate toward all people? In The Courage to Be Happy, best-selling author and meditation teacher Sylvia Boorstein looks into core teachings of Buddhism and Judaism, and she emerges with complementary truths about the happiness that is always available to us despite external circumstances. Boorstein uses her "two vocabularies" - one Buddhist, the other Jewish - to tell how, after years of meditation and prayer, she came to know why the Buddha was called in his time "The Happy One". Fearless and challenging, The Courage to Be Happy is, most of all, about the real meaning of this moment.
