Dieser Titel ist in englischer Sprache.
Haben Sie sich jemals gefragt, wie es wohl wäre, den Dalai Lama über die wirklich beharrlichen Lebensfragen zu interviewen? Warum sind so viele Menschen unglücklich? Wie kann man Einsamkeit bewältigen? Wie kann man Konflikte vermeiden? Was ist die wirkliche Liebe? Warum leidet man? Wie soll man mit Ungerechtigkeiten und Wut umgehen? Wie gehen Sie selbst mit dem Tod eines geliebten Menschen um? Diese und andere Rätselfragen stellt der Psychiater Howard Cutler dem Dalai Lama während einer langen Periode von Interviews in The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living.

Am Anfang erscheinen die Antworten des Dalai Lama sehr simpel, wie das oberflächliche Lesen eines Buches von Robert Fulghum. Frag Dich selbst, ob Du wirklich etwas brauchst; unsere Feinde können unsere Lehrer sein; Mitgefühl bringt dem Geist Frieden. Doch Cutler ist hartnäckig: Viele Leute mit großem Besitz sind aber auch glücklich; Und "das Leben ist Leiden" klingt so pessimistisch; Aber das Extreme zu suchen, bedeutet wahre Lebensfreude, aber was ist, wenn ich nicht an Karma glaube? Je mehr der Dalai Lama sich engagiert, desto mehr bildet sich eine kohärente Philosophie heraus.

Cutler verarbeitet die Antworten des Dalai Lama im Zusammenhang mit wissenschaftlichen Studien und Fällen aus seiner eigenen Arbeit. Er erarbeitet und untermauert eine Psychologie, die er als revolutionär bezeichnet. Wie jede andere Kunst auch, verlangt Glückseligkeit, daß man lernt und auch immer wieder übt -- das Talent liegt auf jeden Fall in unserer Natur, versichert der Dalai Lama. --Brian Bruya

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit down with the Dalai Lama and really press him about life's persistent questions? Why are so many people unhappy? How can I abjure loneliness? How can we reduce conflict? Is romantic love true love? Why do we suffer? How should we deal with unfairness and anger? How do you handle the death of a loved one? These are the conundrums that psychiatrist Howard Cutler poses to the Dalai Lama during an extended period of interviews in The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living. At first, the Dalai Lama's answers seem simplistic, like a surface reading of Robert Fulghum: ask yourself if you really need something; our enemies can be our teachers; compassion brings peace of mind. Cutler pushes: but some people do seem happy with lots of possessions; but "suffering is life" is so pessimistic; but going to extremes provides the zest in life; but what if I don't believe in karma? As the Dalai Lama's responses become more involved, a coherent philosophy takes shape. Cutler then develops the Dalai Lama's answers in the context of scientific studies and cases from his own practice, substantiating and elaborating on what he finds to be a revolutionary psychology. Like any art, the art of happiness requires study and practice--and the talent for it, the Dalai Lama assures us, is in our nature. --Brian Bruya

3.0 von 5 Sternen A treatise on happiness 3. August 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Always one to be skeptical of these kinds of collaborative book efforts, I think it's important to point out that 'The Art of Happiness' was written not by the Dalai Lama, but by Howard C. Cutler, a psychiatrist.
Dr. Cutler weaves together exerpts from numerous conversations with the Dalai Lama spanning many years, and from public talks given throughout Arizona in 1993. The result is a treatise on a topic of widespread importance: happiness (or the lack thereof). If it's Buddhist wisdom you seek, I highly recommend you read "Open Your Mind, Open Your Life: A Little Book of Eastern Wisdom" by Taro Gold.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Very Inspiring Book 15. Juli 2000
Von "sayie"
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"The Art Of Happiness," is a very good book. I didn't appreciate the beauty, and genius behind the thinking of this book, until after I had finished it. While reading, I was most interested, and thought it was very good, but after I had finished the whole thing, I was in a better position to integrate all of the ideas, and see that not only was the book set on a nice premise, but fulfilled its promise - It sets out a clear, achievable, and loving way for people to attain what has become somewhat of a myth to some people: true happiness. I would recommend people read this book at least twice, because there are so many ideas that are portrayed, that they should be absorbed fully. The book has the potential to be a nice first step for many people, myself included. It presents very deep, although sometimes deceptively simple ideas, and the book itself motivates people to be the best they can be. If someone fully integrates the ideas presented into their life, I imagine they would be among a very special few.
The book's form leaves a little to be desired, however. Although mostly effective, the narrative style was sometimes tiresome, it made the flow of the book seem a bit choppy at times, and the reader is subject to some of Cutler's whims, which results in disjoined ideas, and a chapter starting on one premise, and ending on another. That said, the narrative effect is often very effective, and all in all, makes the reader feel more connected with his Holiness.
I was very surprised while reading some of the other reviews of this book.

I disagree with the review from the reader from Oxford. This book is not meant to be a collection of buddhist philosophy obviously there are books written for that. This book written by Dr Cutler is easy to read and is especially useful for people who have no experience of buddhism as it is written from a Western viewpoint and gives examples readers can relate to. It is a superb book which helps people to work out their priorities and cuts to the core regarding the roots of suffering and seeds of happiness. I recommend it to anyone interested in being a happier person be they a buddhist or not!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cross Culture 5. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have spent much of the last two years completely enveloping myself in study of Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan Culture. I was a little unsure at first of how I would feel about His Holiness' words being filtered through a psychologist. In the end, I was delighted with the outcome of the book. The Dalai Lama feels it is so important to cross cultural boundaries and promote understanding and peace between cultures and religions. I believe this book does just what the Dalai Lama strives to do. It opens a window into Tibetan Buddhism and Culture and finds a way to cross the boundary into Western skeptical society. I loved that Cutler was so honest about his original views about some of the things the Dalai Lama had to say and how seeing those ideals put into practice, and actually finding psychological study to corroborate these practices, changed his view of what might be considered sentimental idealism. It's a perfect way to bring Tibetan Buddhism out of the esoteric and into the mainstream.

Von Ted
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
When I purchased this book, I was unprepared for the enormous amount of filler provided by Cutler. I get the impression that, were this book truly about the beliefs of the Dalai Lama as gleaned from Cutler's interviews, the book would only be 10-20 pages long.
Writen for sale to the mass market, not necessarily out of Cutler's intrinsic interest in the underlying complexity in the Dalai Lama's views per se.

5.0 von 5 Sternen AWE INSPIRING 7. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have for a while been looking to make some positive changes in my life and this was the book that helped me do it. It has changed my entire outlook on life, the way I see other people as well as myself. The methods the Dalai Lama presents at first seem simple, too simple, then when you go out and try them you find that not only are they simple, but right on the money. It's good to finally read a book that teaches love, compassion, empathy, gentleness, and kindness. I would recommend this book to anybody.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Skip this one! 29. Februar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It's quite obvious that Dr. Cutler either lacks an understanding of the Dalai Lama's teachings, or is simply using His words to convey Dr. Cutler's own views and concepts.
It was frustrating to constantly run into misinterpretations and inappopriate conjectures. I found myself repeatedly re-reading passages while shaking my head and muttering "no, no, no" to myself.
This is a thinly veiled self-help book, attempting to use the Dalai Lama's name and words to lend credence to simplistic, formulaic bookshelf "wisdom".
Skip this one!
