In Love with the World: A Monk's Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying

At thirty-six years old, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche was a rising star within his generation of Tibetan masters and the respected abbot of three monasteries. Then one night, telling no one, he slipped out of his monastery in India with the intention of spending the next four years on a wandering retreat, following the ancient practice of holy mendicants. His goal was to throw...

    Superb. An intense, introspective and one-of-a-kind memoir as Rinpoche takes us through his soul-searching journey from ego and physical death to his amazing emergence from its ashes. You’ll find yourself in the capable hands of a passionate and seasoned teacher as he generously shares his journey and practices from overcoming anxiety to a miraculous rebirth. This book is a pungent observation of human frailty through an enlightenment process that does not surrender its wisdom easily. Transmuted to gold by the crucible of life, he emerges with a truth as ancient and glowing as the Buddha himself. Highly recommend!

    Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche began studying Tibetan Buddhism and attending retreats to help learn how to deal with death. A bardo believes the stage between ´dying´ and ´rebirth´ is ´becoming´. Yongey felt it would help him come closer to the state of Pure Awareness. Yongey went on a retreat and became deathly ill with food poisoning. He was told he might die. Yongey was able to use his studies to practice his training with living with death.

    This is beautifully written and presented in a way that is easy to understand and follow. The idea of perpetual awareness-staying open to the moment-not grasping for permanence....the idea that everything you ever wanted is here in your present moment of awareness really resonate with me. Its one of the reasons I began studying Buddhism years ago. When we attempt to equate productivity with success, to grasp on to life, make them solid and we begin to lose ourselves. The trick is to stay open and accepting to the present.

    I loves this...its a great introduction to an awesome mindset.

    Thanks to the publisher and author for this e-book ARC for review.

    In 2011 Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche left a note on his bed, walked out of his monastery in India and began a four year wandering retreat.

    Inspired by Tibetan Buddhist yoginis of the past, he aspired to achieve enlightenment and experience his true Buddha nature.

    Following the Tibetan principle of ‘adding wood to the fire’ he deliberately embraced difficult situations to work with them directly.

    Little did he realise that within days he would be facing his own death.

    This book is part travelogue, part memoir and teachings on the Bardos - how we face the transitions and changes in our lives. Including the transition from life to death.

    Thank you to NetGalley for the advance copy.

    Loved this book! I have been following Mingyur Rinpoche for about 6 years. He was on his long retreat when I first learned about him, Tergar, and Tibetan buddhism. This book brings meditation to our everyday lives. Rinpoche explains it in terms of life's ups and downs and how meditation can change your life, perspective of life and how you view the world.

    I am so glad he survived and has come back to share his knowledge. Anyone interested in meditation should look him up, his videos are great fo

    I am so glad he survived and has come back to share his knowledge. Anyone interested in meditation should look him up, his videos are great for starting a meditation practice. He has a wonderful sense of humor and great way of instructing different ways of meditation. His own experiences with mastering mediation let you know that it is a process uniquely individual.

    This is probably the best dharma book I've read since I started practicing. I'm not as familiar with Tibetian practices than other forms of mindfulness meditation, so some of the book required some translation. But Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche has a very unique and powerful mind, and the most amazing parts of this book was simply watching him as he struggled with the defilements and embraced emptiness.

  • Stephanie

    This book is absolutely fabulous. The insights and wisdom shared by Mingyur Rinpoche are endless. I listened to this book on Audible and after chapter 1 purchased it in hard copy as it is lesson upon lesson of how to move beyond everything you identify with source your identity from pure awareness. I laughed, I got sweaty palms as he had to beg for his first meal...I cried as he wrestled with the decision for life or death. This book is beauty, love and wisdom. It is a must read for life!

    From the blurb/seeing the author talk, I was expecting a travelogue of his four-year wandering retreat; instead, this was a deep dive into the first couple weeks, from leaving the monastery to a near-death experience, and what these experiences taught him about impermanence, emptiness, and dying. After the initial surprise wore off, this made enough sense – it did a nice job of illuminating the spiritual lessons that can be learned from everyday moments and in adversity.

After the initial surprise wore off, this made enough sense – it did a nice job of illuminating the spiritual lessons that can be learned from everyday moments and in adversity.

    I probably would have benefited from a deeper knowledge of Tibetan Buddhist theology going in, but it's written clearly enough for a broad audience, so despite some perhaps unavoidable density, I could generally get the picture well enough. All in all, lots of food for thought – I think the overall message, to embrace life's impermanence, is a great counterpoint in a culture that prefers not to think about it.

    Book Review: In Love with the World: A Monk's Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying

    Publication Date: May 7, 2019

    Review Date: March 30, 2019

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    From the blurb:

    “A rare, intimate account of a world-renowned Buddhist monk’s near-death experience and the life-changing wisdom he gained from it.”

    This is a fantastic book for Tibetan Buddhism students. When I requested the book on NetGalley, I was under the impression that it was a biography and memoir. That was how it was labeled. I am not a student of Tibetan Buddhism, or any type of Buddhism for that matter.

    It turned out that the book is primarily a teaching book for Tibetan Buddhist students, based on the Rinpoche’s illness and near-death experience.

    So, I was disappointed, as I was more interested in memoir, in his life story, then the teachings he presented.

    The writing is clear; the story was interesting. I was not interested in the teachings, and was impatient for the story to continue.

    So…if you are a Tibetan Buddhist student, this may be a book you’d very much want to read. If you want to read a memoir/biography, I’d give this book a pass. Unless you want to learn about Tibetan Buddhism.

    If I had purchased this book, thinking I had bought a memoir. I would have been disappointed and less than happy.

    With these caveats, I give the book 3 1/2-4 stars. 5 Stars if you want to read about Tibetan Buddhism.

    Thank you to Random House for allowing me an early look at this book.

    This review will be posted on NetGalley, Goodreads and Amazon.
