Publisher's Summary

Ancient Wisdom for Today

If you think meditation is only for monks, think again. Today's world seems to be growing more and more stressful by the minute - for all of us. So now, as a teacher of Tibetan Buddhist practice and a 21st-century woman, Lama Tsomo offers us time-tested tools for getting underneath our everyday worries and making our lives richer and more fulfilling. In Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling? she acts as our lively, approachable guide to using the ancient traditions and practices of Tibetan Buddhism to find happiness and peace in this modern world.

Through step-by-step instructions and helpful explanations, Lama Tsomo shows how we can start experiencing the many benefits of meditation for ourselves. She offers proven techniques for sharpening our focus, enhancing our relationships, and living each day more mindfully and joyfully. Laced with humor, compassion, and stories from Lama Tsomo's own life, Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling? meets us where we are and guides us onto, and along, the path to a deeper awareness of our world and ourselves. Lama Tsomo's personal and spiritual journey to greater happiness can now be ours as well. As she invites in the Prologue, "Won't you come along?"

Not exactly a “story”, but very worthwhile

I loved what the author had to offer. But I also wanted more of an autobiography, details of her life in Tibet and what she went through learning Tibetan, working with her teacher, family, etc. She mentions other books in her series (not on Audible), so perhaps she covers some of this material there, or else she may think it is just distraction from her spiritual teachings.

I couldn't stop listening. Fascinating!

Lots of laughs, a few tears, and immeasurable wisdom. This is the most relatable book I've found on the subject. Lama Tsomo is a true seeker and it kept me engaged from beginning to end. I went on a road trip and finished it one day.

Very inspiring. I hope she releases the other two novels. These are great foundational level lessons yet there are nuggets for all.
