The Dalai Lama reflected on the meaning of happiness in a public gathering in Atlanta held earlier this month together with three leading figures in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. What are their mental and physical practices, their spiritual insights, to cultivate happiness and sustain it? Can happiness as a way of being in the world also encompass suffering and conflict? These are the questions we explored at the Interfaith Summit on Happiness, which was convened by the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University. It took place on October 17, 2010 before an audience of 4000 people.
Joining the Dalai Lama was Muslim scholar Dr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr of George Washington University, the Most Reverend Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori of the Episcopal Church, and Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks of the British Commonwealth. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, is the head of state and the spiritual leader of Tibet. [Broadcast Date: October 28, 2010]
