My most recent read is The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama. I am very excited as I have always been interested in learning more about buddhism and have had a special interest in the Dalia Lama himself.
I think my interest was first sparked by the Brad Pitt movie Seven Years in Tibet. I know it’s cliche to have hollywood bring a spiritual figure to the limelight of American culture, but hey, at least it worked.
Recently, I found out that His Holiness has taken a professor position at Emory University. I am so jealous that I’m not still in school so I can meet with him. He also did a series of speeches and appearances at Arizona State University and I think to myself, why didn’t I go there instead of Iowa?
I will update you on the progress of the book as I proceed.
