Mingyur Rinpoche | Talks at Google

This refreshing book is yet another sign that the next generation of Buddhism is creative, cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary. Born in 1975 in Nepal, the author is among the generation of Tibetan lamas trained outside of Tibet, and he’s also a gifted meditator. His brain activity has been measured during meditation, earning him the enviable sobriquet of “happiest man on earth.” He fuses scientific and spiritual considerations, explaining meditation as a physical as well as a spiritual process. Mingyur Rinpoche knows from experience that meditation can change the brain. He experienced panic attacks as a child that he was able to overcome through intensive meditation. If diligently practiced, meditation can affect the “neuronal gossip”—his imaginative rendering of brain cell communication—that keeps us stuck in unhappy behaviors. The meditation master offers a wide variety of techniques, counseling ease in practice to avoid boredom or aversion. Less is more; practice shorter periods more often, he says. His approach will be especially welcome for anyone frustrated by meditation or convinced they’re “not doing it right.” This book is a fresh breath from the meditation room, written with kindness, energy and wit. Three cheers for a cheerful contemplative.

  1. As Mingyur Rinpoche comes on this planet for every sentient being, is it possible to translate this video in other languages like Spanish, Portuguese, French, German etc. ? Many people can’t go to the Teachers because they don’t understand English so consequently they don’t understand their teachings and the meaning of Refuge. If they don’t understand what means Refuge they can’t take Refuge. Please can you translate in other languages Mingyur Rinpoche’s teachings? Thank you so much!

  2. I AM A BUDDHIST, I HAVE MADE MISTAKES, I TALK A LOT, I MEDITATE BT DOING NEEDLEWORK
    I AM CALLED A LITTLE GIRL, WHO CARES, MY DAD SAID I WAS A BUDDHIST TO A TEASE
    I AM AN ARTIST A WRITER A YOUTUBE ENTERTAINER, AND DEFINATELY A BUDDHIST
    I JUST PRAISED A LITTLE KID, FOR YELLING AT A PREACHER, I KNOW BUDDHISTS
    RESPECT BUT THAT WAS FUN
    I AM A BUDDHIST ARTIST

  3. Amazing video! One of the only monks who had my complete attention from start to finish. 
    Even though this is not a complete guide to meditation, it definitely will help in getting started. Must watch.

  4. Thank you so much to learn this simple and easy but very beneficial ,especially, for my long ride on a bus to and from work. Yes, I'll do my best to meditate and be aware of it most of the time .

  5. Sorry in advance , IN MY CURRENT MIND perhaps Mr Siddharta's explanation is like a paintings hanging on a wall for all to explore within own mind … perhaps Buddhism is simply a natural process of realization …….but soon after his death , there are millions people with ordinary extra large suffering mind taking advantage on Mr Siddharta's explanation and trying to be smart teaching Buddhism to others ….. these peoples who claimed to attain higher understanding of Mr Siddharta's explanation benefited by holding various titles and recognition like Buddhist Teacher / Master / Grand Master / Venerables / The Holiness / The Holliest etc feeding on his explanation like the nature of a parasite not only transforming perhaps the greatest discovery of mankind into a form of knowledge / culture / traditions / rituals / faith , putting Mr Siddharta into the place he rejected even transforming Buddhism into a factor of human suffering for thousands of years… …In my current mind , All Buddhist Teacher are like someone giving you muddy water to wash your clothing and let you expect it to be cleaned while they waited for you in STARBUCKS with cappuccino paid by you…………………………… ..with a clear mind I am making this claim and will be responsible for it ……I welcome debate from all Buddhist Teacher for my own learning process as I am still challenging this mind ………………….

  6. i'm new to meditation and i don't know a lot about it so i have a question.how can you relax when you are concentrating on something like your breath in the same time?i don't get how is it possible to concentrate on my breath but be relaxed at the same time.

  7. Great video, very inspirational and still lighthearted, I always love watching Mingyur Rinpoche speak. I can also recommend the book "The joy of living" to anyone, it's a great read. Mindful greetings, Simple Happy Zen

  8. What a shame !!! Finding some truth and sharing it with such dicks as Google workers is making thier mind a bit better for them to make their criminal work a bit better !!!
