A Guide to Happiness from the Teachings of Jesus in Tibet
Christians and Buddhists are teaming up for a kinder world…
The key to happiness is helping others. This is the primary messages in a new book, The Eastern Path to Heaven, release by Seabury Press in April 2008. The two authors, Geshe Michael Roach and Lama Christie McNally, "have for the last ten years, explored together the ancient cities, rare manuscripts, and oral traditions of India and Tibet which bear witness to teachings of Saint Thomas – the disciple that Jesus sent to the east. The Eastern Path to Heaven presents the great ideas that came to those lands through Thomas, and describes how we can use authentic Christian teachings of ancient Asia to achieve six goals of life: physical health; financial security; love; happiness; freedom from aging and death; and fulfillment in the service of others."
Star in the East (SIE) an organization founded by Geshe Michael and Lama Christie centered in New York City and Tucson, Arizona, will be offering a meditation workshop in Houston, Texas, on the 10 Forms of Prayer covered in The Eastern Path to Heaven. This ecumenical gathering will take place on Friday, June 6th and Saturday, June 7th, at Trinity Episcopal Church.
