Born in 1975 in the Himalayan border regions between Tibet and Nepal, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a rising star among the new generation of Tibetan Buddhist masters. In addition to spending many years in strict retreat and completing the traditional philosophical training of a Tibetan lama, Rinpoche has had a lifelong interest in Western science and psychology. He was one of the first subjects in the ground-breaking scientific studies on the effects of meditation on the brains of advanced meditators.

Currently, Mingyur Rinpoche teaches throughout the world, with centers on four continents. His candid, often humorous accounts of his own personal difficulties have endeared him to thousands of students around the world. His best-selling book, The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list and has been translated into over twenty languages.
