I had the good fortune to meet the author, Gelong Thubten, in person on several occassions during my time working at Google, where he gave meditation lessons and talks about awareness in the business context. Gelong Thubten, Buddhist monk, meditation teacher and author, has always been fascinated by the question of happiness.

The moment I picked up Gelong Thubten’s A Monk’s Guide To Happiness, with its calming blue cover embossed with golden clouds representing our many thoughts, I knew I was in for captivating and alleviating read. Thubten has 25 years experience with meditation, using it as an advantage to see the world and its many interactions in new and interesting ways. Výsledok potom nie je bohvieaký, keďže desať až pätnásť minút meditácie oproti mnohým hodinám rozptýlenej pozornosti nemá veľkú šancu navodiť zmenu.One aspect of Thubten’s writing that I especially appreciated was his use of analogies and metaphors (though some became repetitive i.

There very few steps and bullet points, which are used to emphasise structure approaching meditation. 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. Meditácia teda nie je o stereotypnom vypustení všetkého z našej hlavy, ale skôr o spracúvaní myšlienok či istom zmierení sa s nimi.He works with major global companies such as Google, Accenture and LinkedIn, and has lectured at Oxford University and for the United Nations. Pri pojme meditácia som si vždy predstavoval polohu v tureckom sede a snahu vytesniť z mysle všetky myšlienky. 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. Yes you could argue that this is a self help book but upon finishing it, it is simpler than that and much more informative. He is now regarded as one of the UK's most influential meditation teachers, with pioneering work in providing non-religious mindfulness programmes to businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons and addiction counselling centres.

This book will help you to understand the power of meditation, living in the present, and how this can transform your life. 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. Taking away all the bell and whistles, breaking down the fundamental and important aspects of mediation and guiding me in steps about how to introduce such behaviour steadily into my daily routine.That all being said, I am much happier using his meditation advice and instruction as a helping hand rather than a prescription for meditation success, as I much prefer the methods I am currently using. Some very good advice and information, it just didn’t really work for me, I didn’t feel inspired to carry out the practice, but this is likely a personal thing.

The book is filled with short guided meditation practices to ease a learner into becoming a daily meditator. The explanations and the exercises invite to immediate "testing", and the way meditation is presented (not as a chore, not as another "to-do"-habit you have to stack and cram in your already full daily list of things to do regularly) is fresh and liberating.GT writing is genuine, with heart and understanding, and is a far departure from some of the condescending and basic run-throughs of meditation I have experienced in the past. This is an insightful and practical guide to meditation, mindfulness and the nature of true, lasting happiness. Meditation exercises can help us develop this skill, but to fully tap into its power, we need to integrate it into our everyday lives. Our desires are stoked by advertising, social media and other aspects of our modern consumer culture, while the tendency to seek pleasure externally eventually becomes a mental habit. 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.
