The explanations and the exercises invite to immediate "testing", and the way meditation is presented (not as a chore, not as another "to-do"-habit you have to stack and cram in your already full daily list of things to do regularly) is fresh and liberating. Mi-a mai captat atenția faptul ca autorul dezbate anumite mituri despre meditație și își mărturisește propria experiența.Not sure I will listen to / read the whole book again but I will possibly dip in if / when I ever feel inspired to do so, glad I’ve read the book though. If you want to get into meditation and only have time for one book about it, this should be the one. Thubten has 25 years experience with meditation, using it as an advantage to see the world and its many interactions in new and interesting ways.
Thubten, a Buddhist monk and meditation expert who has worked with everyone from school kids to Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and Benedict Cumberbatch, explains how meditation and mindfulness can create a direct path to happiness. He ordained as a monk 26 years ago at Samye Ling Tibetan Monastery in Scotland, and he has spent over six years in intensive meditation retreats, the longest of which was 4 years long.
The objective here is to be fully and non-judgmentally focused on whatever we’re experiencing in the present moment.

It comes highly recommended from me as a great opportunity to reduce stress, to find new ways to look at life and understand ourselves better.
The points that are being made in A Monk’s Guide To Happiness are familiar if you have ever read books on meditation but GT is more comprehensive, more tuned in to all avenues of life whether it be literal, spiritual, physical or emotional. Compelling to read and full of profound wisdom, this book rationally describes how our mind functions and how we can cultivate the habit of happiness.
At no point does Thubten compare meditation directly with other activities or denigrate them, but the way he presents the place, benefit and effects of a daily meditation routine makes it clear that this is the only "Master Key" to happiness and lasting change. Dôkladne o nich premýšľajte - prechádzajte jednu po druhej - a skúmajte, prečo ste, alebo by ste mohli byť, za ne vďační. Thubten portrays his own, personal way from an apparent bohème enfant terrible to becoming a monk in Tibetan Buddhism in Scotland. Meditation is more than just a stress-reduction tool or a relaxation therapy, it is the key to finding long-lasting happiness. Everyone looks externally to find contentment, we think material possessions will unlock our happiness.
