In Love With the World – Mingyur Rinpoche and Matthieu Ricard

This event marks the publication in French of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche’s new book In Love With the World, A Monk’s Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying (Fayard Publishing). This book is a rare and intimate account of the near-death experience of a world-renowned Buddhist monk and of an experience which changed his life for ever.

One summer night, at the age of thirty-six, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, a renowned meditation teacher, author and abbot, sneaks out of his monastery and decides, in the greatest secrecy, to abandon the comfort of his life and the prestige of his name. His solitary journey will last more than four years.

We follow this human and spiritual adventure through all the states that the traveler goes through: the enjoyment of freedom, but also the difficulties of extreme loneliness and discomfort. For the abbot has chosen to experience the greatest destitution and it will cost him to approach death. This episode confronts him with his fears, but above all it brings him a new wisdom that he transmits to the reader with frankness and serenity. The answers to the most overwhelming anxieties are often found outside our comfort zone and seeking difficulty to better accept it allows us to transform our fear of death into joy of living.
