A Monk'S Guide To Happiness : Meditation In The 21st Century

Thubten, Gelong

A Guide to Mindfulness and Meditation
In our never-ending search for happiness we often find ourselves looking to external things for fulfillment, thinking that happiness can be unlocked by buying a bigger house, getting that next promotion, or building a perfect family. In The Monk’s Guide to Happiness, author Gelong Thubten, a Buddhist monk and meditation expert who has worked with everyone from Ruby Wax and Benedict Cumberbatch to Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, upends this unfulfilling view of happiness and explains how and why we need to look within and connect to our true essence, in order to find peace.

Thubten offers a new approach in the form of meditation, showing that meditation is more than just a stress-reduction tool or a relaxation therapy: it is the key to finding long-lasting happiness. Instead of suggesting a daily meditation session, readers will learn to incorporate meditation in small moments throughout the day. These micro moments of peace allow us to remain mindful and collected, shifting our focus inwards.

Clear, accessible, and profound, this is a book that will become a classic guide to meditation for years to come. The Monk’s Guide to Happiness will give readers the tools to change their patterns and discover happiness within.
