Tina Turner is known around the world as the Queen of rock and will be forever remembered for her legendary high energy performances. While being raised as a baptist, she was introduced to Buddhism by a friend in Los Angeles back in 1973 and she credits the daily practice of chanting for turning her into an even stronger and wiser woman. In 2009 she joined the Beyond Team and since then recorded four spiritual albums for the project.

Now, in 2020, Tina Turner is back with the publication of an upcoming book written in collaboration with Regula Curti and Taro Gold entitled ‘Happiness Becomes You’.

Out in November 2020 for the German version, December 2020 for the English one TINA returns with a deeply personal book of wisdom that explores her longstanding faith in Buddhism and provides a guide to these timeless principles so you can find happiness in your own life. Here’s own the editor website describes it: Tina is a global icon of inspiration.

And now, with Happiness Becomes You: A Guide to Changing Your Life for Good, Tina shows how anyone can overcome life’s obstacles—even transform the “impossible” to possible—and fulfill our dreams. She shows how we, too, can improve our lives, empowering us with spiritual tools and sage advice to enrich our unique paths.

Buddhism has been a central part of Tina Turner’s life for decades and, in music, film, and live performances, she has shined as an example of generating hope from nothing, breaking through all limitations, and succeeding in life. Drawing from the lessons of her own life, from adversity to stratospheric heights, Tina effortlessly shows how the spiritual lessons of Buddhism help her transform from sorrow, adversity, and poverty into joy, stability, and prosperity. Now, Tina offers the wisdom of an extraordinary lifetime in Happiness Becomes You making this the perfect gift of inspiration for you or a loved one.

      Tina, her strength and faith indeed inspired many people. I became a fan not knowing a single thing about her life and her spiritual side helped me a great deal. I believe as she does that there are no coincidence …
      I hope you are well during those crazy times and I send you all my best wishes!

  8. Tashi deleh Ben. On the section Love Within Tina gives an interview from Zurich. You have part of that interview on this fan clip. I watched the whole interview when it came out but now cannot find it anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. Tho che chey


    1. Hello Tho che chey,
      Unfortunately, the video was removed from YT some times ago, I’ll try to see if I can re-upload it somehow somewhere in the future!


  9. My Mantra for Tina:
    Nobody is young forever,
    Nobody is beautiful forever,
    Nobody is strong forever,
    Nobody lives forever.
    So as long as you are alive show up or talk to your fans.
