The FPMT creates opportunities to listen, reflect, meditate, practice and actualize the unmistaken teachings of the Buddha and based on that experience spreading the Dharma to sentient beings. Lama Zopa Rinpoche and the FPMT is dedicated to fulfilling the wishes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, understanding this to be the quickest and most vast way of benefiting sentient beings.

The Book of J0Y: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu with Douglas Carlton Abrams

We will be delving into "The Book of Joy" by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu with Douglas Carlton Abrams. Along with discussion, we will also be practicing some of the exercises from the book that were crafted to cultivate greater well-being using "the eight pillars of joy" as a framework.

"The Book of Joy lives up to its title and goes much further. It highlights the many ways in which we can all bring greater joy, fulfillment and purpose into our lives, and illuminates the nature of the interconnected relationship between painful emotions and deep happiness. The book not only reaffirms this truth with great clarity, but through the magic of Abrams’ skillful facilitation shows the many ways in which these two great spiritual leaders, both of whom are also great teachers of peace and reconciliation, embody the totality of what it means to be both ordinary and simultaneously outrageous, mischievous, and completely unpredictable!
An unexpected delight of this book is the frequency and ease with which these two men bring forth their playfulness, wit, wisdom, and laugh-out-loud humor, even when they are immersed in profoundly deep discourse."
