Krista Tippett leads this invigorating and unpredictable public conversation on the subject of human happiness, exploring themes of suffering, beauty, and the nature of the body. Along with His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, Lord Jonathan Sacks, chief rabbi of the Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth; the Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Bishop Jefferts Schori, the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church; and Islamic scholar Seyyed Hossein Nasr join him on stage in front of 4,000 attendees.
From a room in a downtown hotel, Krista Tippett interviewed the French Tibetan Buddhist monk and author Matthieu Ricard. They discuss meditation, the nature of happiness, developing the skill of compassion, and much more.
