Where do we come from? Where do we go? What is the meaning of our lives? Is it all fate, coincidence, or providence, and to what degree can we determine things ourselves? With much humour, Dr. Huainigg gives insight into his own life. He speaks about how to live courageously and happily and how to deal with seemingly insurmountable difficulties. His lectures are a special encounter between the speaker and his audience.
