By using these techniques, even on your journey to work you will be able to find moments to practise mindfulness. Gelong pracuje aj s dobre známou teóriou, že najlepšie budú jeho rady fungovať, ak si človek vytvorí návyk a bude sa usilovať využiť dobrý pocit z meditácie aj v priebehu dňa.

There is the other argument of the Buddhists, who are concerned about the notion that we keep Craving – which is the problem that keeps us from achieving Nirvana as the nec plus ultra, the ultimate Joie de Vivre – but not in the French, epicurean way, which has no problem with it, indeed, it can be the catharsis we can achieve – the position in which we do not crave for anything anymore – and even when we are – let us say humanely, transitory, as mere mortals – happy, we fear that this will go away and thus we do not enjoy the benefits of what the Buddhists know and teach us – one of them being this monk – the problem being that even the peaceful Buddhists can go astray – I was reading recently about Myanmar, former Burma, and the Buddhists that have sided with the military junta and even worse, an important number of the supposedly peace loving monks have been involved in violence against the Rohinga, Muslim minority, because of religious conflicts, perhaps a touch of nationalism too. Thubten's expertise lies in teaching meditation and he's introduced mindfulness and calm into the lives of many. He ordained as a monk 26 years ago at Samye Ling Tibetan Monastery in Scotland, and he has spent over six years in intensive meditation retreats, the longest of which was 4 years long. Allowing us to maintain a more substantial state of happiness and stopping unnecessary surges of adrenaline and cortisol from ruining our life experiences.In this profound and inspiring book, Gelong Thubten shares a practical and sustainable approach to happiness. To avoid the pitfalls of grasping and pushing things away, we need to develop the skill of neutrally observing them.

Thubten, a Buddhist monk and meditation expert who has worked with everyone from school kids to Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and Benedict Cumberbatch, explains how meditation and mindfulness can create a direct path to happiness.

In the absence of a regular meditation teacher, I have found that it helps to read as many books as possible on happiness, mindfulness, and just being.

je však "iba" kniha a stále záleží len na nás, či využijeme dané riadky, alebo zas po čase skĺzneme k svojim zaužívaným zvykom. First part walks you through the theory behind meditation and also offers plethora of handy advice about the practice itself. Meditation is more than just a stress-reduction tool or a relaxation therapy, it is the key to finding long-lasting happiness.

Training our minds like a muscle to be more resilient to negative and unhelpful thoughts and learning to keep the mind from wandering resulting in lost focus and harmful distraction. In his warm and engaging debut book he explores the nature of happiness and explains how to bring meditation into our busy 21st-century lives with simple yet effective exercises.It comes highly recommended from me as a great opportunity to reduce stress, to find new ways to look at life and understand ourselves better. With openness, humility and humour he delivers a deep message that will resonate in our modern culture. This book is written in a style that is very easy to read and the guide to meditation is perfect for beginners. Wrote in a gentle way that encourages you to follow his guidance without the stress of am I doing it right. Meditation exercises can help us develop this skill, but to fully tap into its power, we need to integrate it into our everyday lives.

Pulling all of these aspects into short (10-15 min) meditation sessions that will lower stress and give you more time to be happy.

He's taught everywhere from law firms and banks to schools and prisons; he will teach you how to choose happiness and mental calm. In A Monk's Guide to Happiness, Thubten teaches us how to meditate, how to be more 'awake' in life, how to train our minds and reprogramme our stress response and how to introduce 'micro moments' of mindfulness into our daily lives.
