The Art of Happiness - the Dalai Lama - A Short Summary & Review

A Short Summary of the book The Art of Happiness:

The Buddhist method of achieving lasting happiness, from the words of the Dalai Lama.

My favorite Dalai Lama quote from the book:

“A disciplined mind leads to happiness, and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering.”

Questions I pondered while reading the book:

Is happiness internal?

Am I being responsible for me?

My review of the Art of Happiness:

A good place to begin learning peace of mind.

I <3 meditation!
