Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche presents the ancient wisdom of Tibet in a fresh, engaging manner.

Why you should listen

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche's profound yet accessible teachings and playful sense of humor have endeared him to students around the world. After completing traditional training in the meditative and philosophical traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, he founded a monastic college at his home monastery in north India.As an advanced meditator, Rinpoche worked with neuroscientists Drs. Francisco Varela and Richard Davidson to examine the effects of meditation on the brain; the results of that research were reported in both National Geographic and TIME. Now, his teachings weave together his own personal experiences and scientific research, relating both to the practice of meditation. Rinpoche's first book, The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, debuted on The New York Times bestseller list and has been translated into more than 20 languages.
