In Love with the World — Author Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche with Dr. Richard Davidson

Fri May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In Love with the World
Author Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche with Dr. Richard Davidson

Mingyur Rinpoche and Dr. Davidson will be discussing Rinpoche’s latest book, In Love with the World: A Monk’s Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying (Spiegel & Grau, On Sale May 7, 2019). The book is a rare and intimate account of a world-renowned Buddhist monk’s near-death experience and the life-changing wisdom he gained from it.

At thirty-six years old, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche was a rising star within his generation of Tibetan masters when, one night, he slipped out of his monastery in India to embark on a wandering retreat. He wanted to shed his public identity to explore the deepest aspects of his being. Yet he immediately discovered that he was not prepared for the harsh realities outside the monastery. Rinpoche’s adventurous journey took a startling turn when he became deathly ill from food poisoning. His lifelong meditation practice had prepared him to face death, and he now had the opportunity to test the strength of his training.

In this powerful and unusually candid memoir of learning to face fear, the Buddhist master reveals the invaluable lessons he learned from his near-death experience and guides readers through the meditation practices that sustained him. In Love With the World illuminates how we can all train our minds and transform our fears and the small deaths we face each day into joyful living.

Open to all. Attendees will have an opportunity to purchase Rinpoche’s book during online registration but not at the event.
