    There is a lot to process here, and I highly recommend it! It?s not a typical meditation instruction manual, nor is it solely a collection of dharma talks. It?s really interesting how this book is a hybrid of meditation practice and an adventure story of gaining wisdom, (perh...

    This is probably the best dharma book I've read since I started practicing. I'm not as familiar with Tibetian practices than other forms of mindfulness meditation, so some of the book required some translation. But Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche has a very unique and powerful mind, and the mo...

    Loved this book! I have been following Mingyur Rinpoche for about 6 years. He was on his long retreat when I first learned about him, Tergar, and Tibetan buddhism. This book brings meditation to our everyday lives. Rinpoche explains it in terms of life's ups and downs and how meditatio...

    I enjoy this book. It was more helpful than the Dalai Lama's book "The Art Of Happiness." I think this because I could contact with Rinpoche more than I could with the Dalai Lama. Both books are written by someone else. In this book, I could relate with Rinpoche. In the Dalai Lama's bo...

    From the blurb/seeing the author talk, I was expecting a travelogue of his four-year wandering retreat; instead, this was a deep dive into the first couple weeks, from leaving the monastery to a near-death experience, and what these experiences taught him about impermanence, emptiness,...

    This is a tricky one to rate. There's two aspects to it, really: the Monk's journey (or, the beginning of it) and Buddhist teachings on life and death. I think it was the contrast between the two that made this such a slow read for me, because it's two topics I'm rather fascinate...

    Ming-yur believes that our minds are fundamentally good. It's basic nature is already full of wisdom, intelligence, and compassion. He believes that the human mind is intrinsically empty, a mirror in which every appears. This is the non-duality teaching of the buddhism that I'm struggl...
