He is holy but he is also so mischievous, so full of fun, he makes goodness attractive, for he is so full of joy. The truth is he epitomises joy, he epitomises grace, he epitomises truth and peace.
So says Archbishop Desmond Tutu of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in the moving video message below. The Archbishop visited his dear friend in May 2015 and the two Peace Laureates celebrated the Dalai Lama’s 80th birthday ‘in deep dialogue and playful laughter as they shared their experiences of how to find joy in the face of life’s challenges.’ They are collaborating on “The Book of Joy” which will be published shortly.
