By looking at the Buddha's teachings through the lens of our contemporary experience, Deepak Chopra has created a set of principles for living well even in the most difficult times. The Happiness Prescription takes readers on an inspiring and instructive journey beginning with Buddha's Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path to Enlightenment. The result is a prescription for living life mindfully, joyfully, and with effortless spontaneity - a prescription only Deepak Chopra could write. With words like 'recession' and 'depression' in the air, it's important to keep an eye on the positive aspects of life and find ways to experience joy. This book will help readers maintain an optimistic outlook and experience the benefits of having a happy heart and soul, no matter what their circumstances.
