Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:


Everyone wants happiness. We chase after it daily. We look for it in relationships, in our careers, in financial security, in good health . . . In other people―a lover, a spouse, a friend, our own children.

For some of us, happiness would be found in world peace. For others, in a clean environment for our planet. For some, when world hunger ends, or when a compassionate politician is elected.

Happiness is so conditional. It depends on so many circumstances over which we have no control. No wonder that lasting happiness or joy has always eluded us.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

WHAT IF THERE WERE A WAY TO BE HAPPY ALL THE TIME . . . A way to experience joy without conditions?

Unconditional joy . . . Unconditional happiness . . . No matter what takes place around us, or what happens to us. The loss of a job or a loved one. The ending of a relationship. Sudden illnesses, financial devastation . . .

What if we could remain even-minded, calm, and peaceful―happy under all circumstances, no matter what takes place? Because deep within is a place untouched by external events, where JOY resides.

Not a fleeting, ephemeral, conditional joy, but unconditional joy. Joy that depends on no causes. Joy that just IS.

This powerful collection of spiritual writings will change your life, through new perspectives for facing life's challenges, and through inspiration for living a life in unconditional joy.

Drawing from the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda―author of the bestselling classic Autobiography of a Yogi (the book Steve Job asked to be given to each guest at his funeral)―Touch of Joy shares practical tools, instructive stories, and right attitudes to help you tap into the wellsprings of joy within you.

Swami Kriyananda, disciple of Yogananda, once said: “Joy is the solution, not the reward.” To learn to live with joy under all circumstances, and not to wait only until conditions are to our liking, is the secret of a happy life.

Touch of Joy shows how to find that joy.
