Description

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.

abridged!

This is a great, great book. Unfortunately this audio version is severly abridged. Better to read the print version.

Excellent book about awareness

A book for people interested in the nature of reality. Concise, scientifically oriented and spiritual at the same time. Easy to listen to but requires attention.

Worthwhile

Some interesting ideas about brain and mind; science and spirituality. I found it a tad light on practical tips, and a bit heavy on the supernatural towards the end. Still a worthwhile listen!

Accessible lesson in modern language

I've read many Buddhist and Hindu texts, but none have come close to this in terms of readability. Mingyar presents a very accessible set of instructions and insights written modern language with examples that most of us can relate to. There's no riddles, no hidden secrets, or unrealistic claims...just simple, easy to follow lessons.

An easy, engaging listen with surprising insights.

What did you love best about The Joy of Living?

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche makes what is often an exotic and esoteric subject very accesible thanks to his familiarity with Western culture and concerns.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rinpoche illustrates the basic points of Tibeten Buddhism and meditation practice with his own life experiences... which really are interesting and engaging.

What about Eric Swanson and Jason Scott Campbell ’s performance did you like?

The read is natural, well-paced, and unaffected.

I did not realize this was abridged.

Any additional comments?

I am just now seeing that this was the abridged version. I feel like I still learned significantly about Buddhist mindfulness and meditation and what I learned was presented in a way that I could easy implement these ideas in my life. No, I am not Buddhist or interested in converting.

I have practiced some of the suggested

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. ;-)

The joy

I find the history ok, but I don't like the interview format, I feel I need more for meditation information after listening.
