JOYFUL WISDOM Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

by: Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a highly respected Buddhist scholar and teacher and is best known for his ability to address our human weaknesses with deeply personal understanding and compassion. Using Buddhist practices, Joyful Wisdom reveals ways in which we can overcome anxiety and troubling emotions, embrace change and find freedom. In this sequel to The Joy of Living, he explores the role of positive thinking and how to overcome anxiety in everyday life. Joyful Wisdom is divided into three parts, the way traditional Buddhist texts are organized: the first part offers an overview of the basic unease we feel, how it evolved, its true source. Part two describes the methods of meditation that transform our experiences into deeper insights. The third part explores the application of these methods to emotional, physical, and personal problems. Examples are drawn from Yongey Mingyur's personal experience, the stories of friends and teachers, and in particular the conversations with people he's met during the years he has spent teaching around the world.
