“Can a Buddhist have a good time?” could be the subtitle of the book Awakening Joy, by James Baraz and Shoshana Alexander. Starting with the First Noble Truth, it can sometimes seem like Buddhism leaves no room for happiness. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. It tuns out that when we live in alignment with the Dharma our lives become happier. The Awakening Joy program is based on the cultivation of wholesome states from which happiness arises naturally, like seeds sprouting in a well cultivated flower bed.
