Description About the author
The art of Buddhism beautifully depicts enlightened beings who demonstrate the practice of meditation yet, while deeply inspiring, art alone cannot teach one to meditate. In The Pure Joy of Being Fabrice Midal brings together traditional Buddhist art with enlightening text as a way to teach the tradition and practice of meditation. Filled with images of bodhisattvas and awakened beings who illustrate the possibility of freedom, alongside practical instruction, advice, and meditations for the everyday situations we face on a daily basis, this book is an accessible introduction to meditation and the wisdom of the Buddha's teachings.

To meditate is to remain in the present moment with attention and benevolence, to remove the desire to manage everything, and to open yourself up to life and all that is possible. It's as simple as that. And yet, meditating is not easy. What is true happiness? How can we overcome difficulties in life with courage? Can meditation help in today's world? The Pure Joy of Being teaches that the goal of meditation is to turn us into beings that are more human and capable of thinking, feeling, and loving better. It offers contemporary practices to set us on this path.
