He is the Dalai Lama, Tibet's spiritual leader, Nobel Prize winner, statesman and much-sought-after speaker. Why is he so popular? Even after spending just a few minutes in his presence, you can't help but feel happier. If you ask him if he is happy, even though he is suffering the loss of his country, the Dalai Lama will say yes unconditionally. Furthermore, he will say that happiness is the goal of life, and that the very movement of our life is towards happiness. How to get to her. has always been the question. He's tried to answer it before, but he's never had the help of a psychiatrist to get the message across in an easy-to-understand context.
