Awareness and Compassion:
Essential Teachings on the Joy of Living
Teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
in Tergar Monastery, Bodhgaya, India
Meditation enables us to discover a lasting contentment that is not subject to the fluctuating conditions of our lives, and to nurture the qualities of kindness and compassion that naturally manifest from awareness itself. The Joy of Living is a path of meditation practice that was created by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. Rooted in the Buddhist teachings of Tibet, these practices work with basic functions of the mind, such as mindful awareness and the impulse to move toward happiness and away from suffering. In working with these qualities of mind, we gradually transform our relationship to present–moment experience, learning to approach our thoughts, feelings, and sensory experiences with unconditional warmth and acceptance.
This teaching offers a rare opportunity to explore the practice of meditation with Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. This is the first time that he will present the essence of the Joy of Living teachings in this format, sharing insights from his own experience and illuminating key points on the cultivation of awareness, loving-kindness, and compassion. He will also introduce new elements that he himself practiced during his extended retreat, including breathing practices and physical exercises.
This retreat is suitable for both novice and experienced meditators. It offers beginning meditators an opportunity to receive in-depth teachings on meditation practice from Mingyur Rinpoche and for experienced meditators to deepen their practice and understanding.
