Overview of Presentation
All of us want to be happy and avoid suffering. Yet too often we feel battered by adversity. Tibetan medicine, Tibet’s ancient, timely science of healing, teaches that happiness is the purpose of life. Spiritual immunity and resilience empower us to create happiness in the midst of life’s challenges.
