Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Born in 1975 in the Himalayan border regions between Tibet and Nepal, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a much-loved and accomplished meditation master.
Rinpoche possesses a rare ability to present the ancient wisdom of Tibet in a fresh, engaging manner. His profound yet accessible teachings and playful sense of humor have endeared him to students around the world.
In early June, 2011, Mingyur Rinpoche walked out of his monastery in Bodhgaya, India and began a “wandering retreat” through the Himalayas and the plains of India that lasted four and a half years.
IN LOVE WITH THE WORLD: A Monk’s Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying, is his recently launched book. In this powerful and unusually candid memoir of learning to face fear, written with Helen Tworkov, Rinpoche reveals the invaluable lessons he learned from his near-death experience and guides readers through the meditation practices that sustained him.
“Part thriller, part deeply personal autobiography, and part Buddhist teachings on how to live a meaningful life, this is an extraordinary book. It has something profoundly important to teach each of us.”—Richard J. Davidson, author of The Emotional Life of Your Brain
