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

'Generous, beautiful, and essential' - George Saunders, Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo

'This book makes me think enlightenment is possible and necessary.' - Russell Brand

In In Love With the World, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, one of the world's most respected leaders of Tibetan meditation, shares his personal story of how he explored the deepest, most hidden aspects of his being, and the near-death experience that came to define his meditation practice and teaching forever. Moving, beautiful and suffused with local colour, Rinpoche shares the invaluable lessons learned during his four-year wandering retreat and the meditation practices that sustained him, showing how we can all transform our fear of dying into joyful living.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book makes me think enlightenment is possible and necessary. -- Russell Brand
One of the most generous, beautiful, and essential books I've ever read - thoroughly engaging, so clear, so honest, so courageous and full of wisdom. This book has the potential to change the reader's life forever. -- George Saunders, Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo
I loved this book. It is moving and inspiring, profound and utterly human. It will certainly be a classic. Mingyur's life-changing adventure carries us with him and teaches us how to find the unshakable heart amidst it all. -- Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart
One of the most inspiring books I have ever read. -- Pema Choedroen, author of When Things Fall Apart
One of the most inspiring books of our times. An extraordinary testimony and a profound teaching that keeps you reading with wonderment, page after page. -- Matthieu Ricard, author of Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill and Altruism: The Power of Compassion to Change Yourself and the World
This is an extraordinary book. A gripping narrative of how the process of dying, letting go of our fixed selves and constraining habits, can liberate the human spirit and promote flourishing, this book has something profoundly important to teach each of us. -- Richard J. Davidson, best-selling author of Emotional Life of Your Brain, co-author of Altered Traits, and Founder and Director, Center for Healthy Minds, University of Wisconsin-Madison
In this vivid, compelling account, Mingyur Rinpoche reveals his own struggle and awakening as he faces the loss of worldly identity and the threat of dying itself. This book is a rarity in spiritual literature: Reading the intimate story of this wise and devoted Buddhist monk directly infuses our own transformational journey with fresh meaning, luminosity and life. -- Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge
This book will change many lives. -- Tara Bennett-Goleman, author of Emotional Alchemy
This artfully told spiritual adventure casts a spell-you can't put it down, and you don't want it to end. I recommend it without reservation: I bet you'll love it, too. -- Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
In his book, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche gifts us with more than just a mesmerizing read. As Rinpoche narrates his spiritual journey, he lays bare his early hopes and aspirations, his doubts, indignities, bodily and emotional suffering, and his vulnerabilities. He offers these with great skill, clarity, and love to encourage and inspire us to travel our own spiritual journeys. -- Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Love
A rollicking travelogue...this slim book also moved me, and left me with a better appreciation of Tibetan Buddhism than so many weightier tomes that I've struggled to understand. -- Barbara Demick, Baillie Gifford award-winning author of Nothing to Envy
