Reviews

He should know: studies on the brain of the Very Venerable 7th Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche show a mammoth increase in neural activity in the part associated with those good-time feelings. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

This refreshing book is yet another sign that the next generation of Buddhism is creative, cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary. Born in 1975 in Nepal, the author is among the generation of Tibetan lamas trained outside of Tibet, and he's also a gifted meditator. His brain activity has been measured during meditation, earning him the enviable sobriquet of "happiest man on earth." He fuses scientific and spiritual considerations, explaining meditation as a physical as well as a spiritual process. Mingyur Rinpoche knows from experience that meditation can change the brain. He experienced panic attacks as a child that he was able to overcome through intensive meditation. If diligently practiced, meditation can affect the "neuronal gossip"-his imaginative rendering of brain cell communication-that keeps us stuck in unhappy behaviors. The meditation master offers a wide variety of techniques, counseling ease in practice to avoid boredom or aversion. Less is more; practice shorter periods more often, he says. His approach will be especially welcome for anyone frustrated by meditation or convinced they're "not doing it right." This book is a fresh breath from the meditation room, written with kindness, energy and wit. Three cheers for a cheerful contemplative. (Mar. 6) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

I heartily recommend this to anyone interested in the healing arts, consciousness studies, and genuine contemplative practice today -- Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within
There is real wisdom here. Fresh and clear. Rinpoche has offered us what may well be an essential link between the Buddha and contemporary neuroscience and physics... His voice is generous, intimate and refreshingly personal... Read this book -- Richard Gere, Actor
