The Jewels of Happiness by peace visionary Sri Chinmoy offers rich inspiration for cultivating happiness in life. The chapters are read by distinguished individuals from many fields, each of whom has made a unique contribution to the world.
The 17 readers include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Grammy Award winner Roberta Flack, Emmy and Tony Award winner Judith Light and Olympic great Carl Lewis. Topics include Peace, Love, Joy, Power, Sincerity, Self-Transcendence and Happiness. In simple and accessible language, with practical exercises, each section of the audio book gives life to one of these essential qualities.
Sri Chinmoy led the Peace Meditations at the United Nations twice weekly for 37 years at the invitation of UN Secretary-General U Thant. The meditations, which continue to this day, seek to provide an oasis of inner peace for UN delegates and staff. Sri Chinmoy also founded the world's largest global relay run, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run. Through his prolific creativity in literature, music, sport, art and humanitarian service, this dedicated friend of humanity encouraged people of all nations to bring forward the best in themselves for their own fulfilment and for the progress of the world.
The Jewels of Happiness was launched at United Nations Headquarters on the eve of the first UN-declared International Day of Happiness. The emerging field of happiness economics is now discovering what wise men and women have always known: that the happiness of a society depends upon far more than material wealth. Reflecting the ideal of unity in diversity, the readers convey Sri Chinmoy's illumining insights into genuine happiness with conviction, variety and charm.
