Reader Reviews of The Jewels of Happiness

“As he uses his experience as Peace meditation leader of the United Nations, Sri Chinmoy encourages people to find their enthusiasm for life, and with that, they will find love as well. The Jewels of Happiness is an excellent read with much to teach, highly recommended.” Midwest Book Review

There is tons of books on happiness… but this one is different! Rather than saying what you should do, how to behave, etc, it naturally and gently inspires you to be a better human being and then you gradually start to feel the real and lasting happiness deep inside you. Just listening to/reading this book uplifts you more than you would expect.” Jayana

“Sri Chinmoy became cemented in my mind as a true literary giant. He presents such profound thoughts in an amazingly eloquent and simple manner. The mark of a true genius, I think, is the ability to distill profundity into simplicity.” Rudy Andrews

“A beautiful book. Full of inspirational and totally practical words of wisdom to help and guide one through everyday life. Can be read as a whole or simply (my preference) dipped into. Its messages are full of hope, that seem to transfer readily to the reader with ease and optimism. Highly recommended.” Rita Mehta

Supporting the International Day of Happiness

The Jewels of Happiness project is a proud supporter of the International Day of Happiness, which was declared by the United Nations General Assembly.
