On Dec. 26, the world lost Archbishop Desmond Tutu, an iconic leader of South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement and a beloved friend of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In a moving documentary that debuted last year called, “Mission: Joy — Finding Happiness in Troubled Times,” the two spiritual brothers and Nobel Peace laureates chat, laugh and even dance together.

In this Tibet Talk, we speak to Geshe Thupten Jinpa, a Buddhist scholar and the primary English translator for His Holiness, who is one of the principal interviewees in the film. Join us for this conversation on the making of “Mission: Joy” and the continuing mission to spread joy.
