IN LOVE WITH THE WORLD - WHAT A MONK CAN TEACH YOU ABOUT LIVING FROM NEARLY DYING

À propos

A rare, intimate account of a world-renowned Buddhist monk''s near-death experience and the life-changing wisdom he gained as a result. ''One of the most generous, beautiful, and essential books I''ve ever read - thoroughly engaging, so clear, so honest, so courageous and full of wisdom.'' George Saunders, Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo ''This book makes me think enlightenment is possible and necessary.'' Russell Brand Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche''s experience begins the night he has chosen to embark on a four-year wandering retreat, slipping past the monastery gates. Alone for the first time in his life, he sets out into the unknown. His initial motivation is to step away from his life of privilege and to explore the deepest, most hidden aspects of his being, but what he discovers throughout his retreat - about himself and about the world around us - comes to define his meditation practice and teaching. Just three weeks into his retreat, Rinpoche becomes deathly ill and his journey begins in earnest through this near-death experience. Moving, beautiful and suffused with local colour, In Love with the World is the story of two different kinds of death: that of the body and that of the ego, and how we can bridge these two experiences to live a better and more fulfilling life. Rinpoche''s skilful and intimate account of his search for the self is a demonstration of how we can transform our dread of dying into joyful living.
