Why meditate? On what? Andhow? In his latest bookWhy Meditate?-an instant bestseller in the authorrs"s native France-Matthieu Ricardaims to answer these very questions. As a molecular geneticist turned Buddhist monk, Ricard brings a wholly unique perspective to the practice of meditation. Often referred to as "the happiest man in the world," he advises us in the ways to imbue our lives with a true sense of serenity and fulfillment. In simple, clear language, Ricard walks readers through the theories and practicalities of meditation, demonstrating its many benefits in our modern world. He shows readers how to achieve emotional balance, enhance mindfulness, expand altruistic love, and develop a sense of inner calm; while also reducing anxiety, vulnerability to pain, and tendency toward depression and anger. This enlightening book conflates the spiritual with the scientific, the transcendent with the pragmatic, and the Western world with Eastern wisdom. No matter what point of view you approach it from-whether that of personal transformation or physical health-meditation emerges as a prominent part of leading a balanced life. In the accompanying 60-minute CD, Ricard explores the concepts of freedom and self, expands on the benefits of meditation, and advises on the benefits of creating a regular meditative practice. All of the authorrs"s proceeds from the sale of this book go to Karuna-Shechen, a humanitarian organization that he founded to provide primary health care and education for the under-served populations of the Himalayan region.

Matthieu Ricard, a Buddhist monk residing in Katmandu, is a coauthor of "The Monk & the Philosopher" & is the official French translator of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
