The fifteenth content update was released on March 21, 2013.

In the thirteenth content update, a task for Lisa to "Meditate" for 30 minutes at the Springfield Buddhist Temple appeared, locked, in Lisa's task list. The task was removed with the next update, before being released officially with this update.

The content of the update was known a few weeks before its release; on March 7, 2013, both the TSTO Player forum and the official EA Tapped Out forum posted a list of new characters and buildings set to be introduced with a Level 27 content update.

The update also changed the length of Tom O'Flanagan's, introduced in the St. Patrick's Day update, "Visit the Track" task from 3 hours to 24 hours.

The description of the Mystery Box was also changed to "A prize in every box with a chance to win premium items!"

Many players posted on the Tapped Out forum that with the update the XP goal had been reduced to a mere 9,000 and caused the XP bar to freeze. According to the TSTO Tips blog, if the player buys between 10-40 weather stations the XP bar should start moving again.

Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Actually I'm trying to find meaning in this world of daily drudgery.
Tapped Out Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png All you need to do is trust in the wisdom of the Almighty Finger. I mean, God.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Actually, Springfield exploded and then returned. I've been thinking this might be proof of the Buddhist concept of Samsara -
Tapped Out Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png Oh Lord. Is this another conversation where you try to convince me Buddha was just a chubby Jesus?

Tapped Out Lenny Icon.png But we did everything right. Gave to the poor. Helped old ladies cross the street. Made sure our magazines were, at the minimum, barely legal.
Tapped Out Lenny Icon.png I was hoping to at least be reincarnated as you.

Tapped Out Carl Icon.png I say give the job to me as well.
Tapped Out Lenny Icon.png Hey! I thought you were going to do that thing where you say no, give him the job, and then we argue over something good.
Tapped Out Carl Icon.png Nope. Did that thing where I just take it.

Buddha's Got Back Pt. 4[edit]

After tapping Lenny's exclamation mark
Tapped Out Lenny Icon.png Guess I have to rely on my fallback teaching job. Good thing I'm an expert on how chew tobacco.

Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png In my heart? Ho-ha, what a delightful jape!
Tapped Out Carl Icon.png Please sir. Couldn't you just pay me less, and use the money you save to hire Lenny?
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png But if I paid you less, then you wouldn't be making more money than you deserve... which means you could no longer be an executive.

Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png Very well, Your compassion has taught me something... why I am ludicrously rich and you are middle class.
