Chapter one, The Right to Happiness, introduces what the book; the Art of Happiness is about.Psychiatrist Howard Cutler followed the Dalai Lama around on this tour.

"I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness.That is clear, whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we all are seeking something better in life.So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness…” (13).The Dalai Lama spoke this powerful statement at a conference in Arizona among a crowd of people.The Art of Happiness (Riverhead, 1998, ISBN 1-57322-111-2) is a book by the Dalai Lama and Howard Cutler, a psychiatrist who posed questions to the Dalai Lama.

Cutler quotes the Dalai Lama at length, providing context and describing some details of the settings in which the interviews took place, as well as adding his own reflections on issues raised.The book explores training the human outlook that alters perception.The concepts that the purpose of life is happiness, that happiness is determined more by the state of one’s mind than by one’s external conditions, circumstances, or events—at least once one’s basic survival needs are met and that happiness can be achieved through the systematic training of our hearts and minds.His stance on happiness changed after spending some time with this peace leader.“When I say ‘training the mind,’ in this context I’m not referring to ‘mind’ merely as one’s cognitive ability or intellect.Rather I’m using the term in the sense of the Tibetan word Sem, it includes intellect and feeling, heart and mind.
