For millennia, Buddhists have enjoyed the limitless benefits of meditation. But how does it work? In this groundbreaking book, world-renowned Buddhist teacher Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche invites us to join him in unlocking the secrets behind the practice of meditation. With an infectious joy and insatiable curiosity, he weaves together the principles of Tibetan Buddhism, neuroscience, and quantum physics in a way that will forever change the way we understand the human experience. Using the basic meditation practices he provides, we can discover paths through everyday problems, transforming obstacles into opportunities to recognize the unlimited potential of our own minds.
With an introduction by co-author Eric Swanson, The Joy of Living is a stunning breakthrough, an illuminating vision of the science of Buddhism and a handbook for transforming our minds, bodies, and lives.



"This book is a fresh breath from the meditation room, written with kindness, energy, and wit. Three cheers for a cheerful contemplative." ( Publishers Weekly)

Joy ... at second sight

When I first heared that book, I was close to regretting to have bought it. It felt like an hard to understand psychologic essay. That was not, was I expected from Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, a guy who is so often described as funny and bright. So I stopped listening after about half an hour.
Later I read a few more things of and about YMR, tried it again and couldn't believe that it was the same book. I will never know why it didn't work at the first try, but at the second start I heared the great ideas, views and hints of the funny and bright guy I expected from the beginning. Never would I regret the buy from todays point of view.

So maybe if someone has a bad start on that book, he may give him another try. ;-)
