Happiness in a Material World - Dalai Lama
Here the Dalai Lama shows how centuries of Buddhist wisdom can bring meaning to our own lives. With an introduction to Buddhist practice to begin, this book then gives the life stories of the 13th Dalai Lama, the 14th Dalai Lama and Atisha. The main section is then a teaching entitled "Happiness in a Material World" followed by the "Path to Happiness".
His Guide to Happiness is of course influenced by Buddhism. But it really is not a religious approach but rather a very practical one: We can achieve happiness by developing our mind and applying it, in other words by personal development.
