A plea for the animals : the moral, philosophical, and evolutionary imperative to treat all beings with compassion by Matthieu Ricard( Book )

31 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A powerful and wide-ranging indictment of the treatment of animals by humans--and an eloquent plea for animal rights. -- Every cow just wants to be happy. Every chicken just wants to be free. Every bear, dog, or mouse experiences sorrow and feels pain as intensely as any of us humans do. In a compelling appeal to reason and human kindness, Matthieu Ricard here takes the arguments from his best-sellers Altruism and Happiness to their logical conclusion: that compassion toward all beings, including our fellow animals, is a moral obligation and the direction toward which any enlightened society must aspire. He chronicles the appalling sufferings of the animals we eat, wear, and use for adornment or "entertainment," and submits every traditional justification for their exploitation to scientific evidence and moral scrutiny. What arises is an unambiguous and powerful ethical imperative for treating all of the animals with whom we share this planet with respect and compassion

In search of wisdom : a monk, a philosopher, and a psychiatrist on what matters most = Trois amis en quãete de sagesse by Christophe André( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Search of Wisdom is a book born of the friendship of three gifted teachers, exploring the universal human journey and our quest for meaning and understanding. This translation of the French bestseller brings readers an intimate, insightful, and wide-ranging conversation between Buddhist monk and author Matthieu Ricard, philosopher Alexandre Jollien, and psychiatrist Christophe André. Join these three luminaries as they share their views on how we uncover our deepest aspirations in life, the nature of the ego, living with the full range of human emotion, the art of listening, the temple of the body, the origin of suffering, the joy of altruism, true freedom, and much more. "We don't pretend to be experts on the subject matter or models in accomplishing the work or overcoming the obstacles involved in it," they write. "We are only travelers in search of wisdom, aware that the path is long and arduous, and that we have so much still to discover, to clarify, and to assimilate through practice . . . Our dearest wish is that when you cast your eyes on these pages, you will discover subjects for reflection to inspire you and brighten the light of your life."
Beyond the self : conversations between Buddhism and neuroscience by Matthieu Ricard( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Buddhism shares with science the task of examining the mind empirically; it has pursued, for two millennia, direct investigation of the mind through penetrating introspection. Neuroscience, on the other hand, relies on third-person knowledge in the form of scientific observation. In this book, Matthieu Ricard, a Buddhist monk trained as a molecular biologist, and Wolf Singer, a distinguished neuroscientist--close friends, continuing an ongoing dialogue--offer their perspectives on the mind, the self, consciousness, the unconscious, free will, epistemology, meditation, and neuroplasticity. Ricard and Singer's wide-ranging conversation stages an enlightening and engaging encounter between Buddhism's wealth of experiential findings and neuroscience's abundance of experimental results. They discuss, among many other things, the difference between rumination and meditation (rumination is the scourge of meditation, but psychotherapy depends on it); the distinction between pure awareness and its contents; the Buddhist idea (or lack of one) of the unconscious and neuroscience's precise criteria for conscious and unconscious processes; and the commonalities between cognitive behavioral therapy and meditation. Their views diverge (Ricard asserts that the third-person approach will never encounter consciousness as a primary experience) and converge (Singer points out that the neuroscientific understanding of perception as reconstruction is very like the Buddhist all-discriminating wisdom) but both keep their vision trained on understanding fundamental aspects of human life." -- Publisher's description
Journey to enlightenment : the life and world of Khyentse Rinpoche, spiritual teacher from Tibet : with a remembrance by His Holiness the Dalai Lama : excerpts from the writings of Khyentse Rinpoche and other teachers by Matthieu Ricard( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and German and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poet, scholar, philosopher, and master of Vajrayana (Tibetan) Buddhism, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche led a life of profound dedication to spiritual enlightenment and teaching. During the final fourteen years of his life his personal assistant was Matthieu Ricard. Together they traveled throughout Tibet, Bhutan, India, and Nepal, returning to the places of Khyentse Rinpoche's youth: his birthplace in Eastern Tibet; the monastery of Shechen which he had entered at the age of
Buddhist Himalayas by Olivier Föllmi( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and French and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Terma' a Tibetan word meaning 'revealed treasures, ' applies to teachings hidden by ancient masters under rocks or in the earth to be found by future generations; it also applies to this massive volume of photographs and text. The Föllmis have spent 25 years living, working and travelling in the Himalayas with peasants, nomads, monks and spiritual masters; Ricard, a monk himself, has photographed life in Tibet and Nepal for 30 years and is the French translator for the Dalai Lama. Their giant, glossy photographs (often in two-page spreads) capture the vividness of Tibet's landscape and people in beautiful detail. The accompanying essays cover basic Buddhist concepts, schools of Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan astrology and medicine as well as profiles of village, monastic and nomadic life. (The topic of meditation, however-a core practice of Buddhism-strangely warrants only a brief description in the glossary.) Chilling accounts of the Chinese invasion and occupation and its results (1,200,000 slaughtered, over 6,000 temples destroyed) convey the bleakness of the situation: this is a culture on the verge of extinction. Captions to the 185 color photographs come at the end of the book, and although going back and forth from photo to explanatory text can be bothersome, the stunningly rich images make the effort worthwhile. For anyone interested in Buddhism and the history and culture of Tibet, this book is a worthy object of meditation."--Publisher description

Bhutan : the land of serenity by Matthieu Ricard( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and French and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tucked away between China and India in the heart of the Himalayas, Bhutan remains a relatively little-known country. Few photographers have been granted permission to enter this obscure and long-inaccessible kingdom, where life quietly unfolds to the rhythm of traditions amidst the magnificent, unspoilt landscape. Nearly twenty-five years ago, Matthieu Ricard, a monk and photographer, went to Bhutan to study with Dilgo Khyenste Rinpoche, a highly revered Tibetan Buddhist master and teacher, with whom he spent nearly eight years. During this time, he also came to know Bhutans royal family. He has continued to return to the land of the dragon or Druk-yul as Bhutan is known in Tibetan throughout his life, discovering on each occasion another of its invaluable treasures. As a Buddhist monk, he has not only witnessed religious ceremonies, the life of a great Buddhist master, and exceptional works of art, but has also participated in the daily lives of local villagers. His encounters and experiences are recorded here in this exceptionally beautiful book

Plaidoyer pour l'altruisme : la force de la bienveillance by Matthieu Ricard( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abreuvés d'images violentes, confrontés à une société en crise, on n'imagine pas la force de la bienveillance, le pouvoir de transformation positive qu'une véritable attitude altruiste peut avoir sur nos vies au plan individuel et, partant, sur la société tout entière. Moine bouddhiste depuis près de quarante ans, Matthieu Ricard, lui, expérimente les vertus de l'altruisme au quotidien. Au carrefour de la philosophie, de la psychologie, des neurosciences, de l'économie, de l'écologie, Plaidoyer pour l'altruisme est la somme d'années de recherches, de lectures, d'expériences, d'observation et de réflexion. Avec le sens de la pédagogie qui le caractérise et toujours en s'appuyant sur des exemples très concrets, l'auteur de Plaidoyer pour le bonheur démontre point par point que l'altruisme n'est ni une utopie ni un vœu pieux, mais une nécessité, voire une urgence, dans notre monde de plus en plus interdépendant à l'heure de la mondialisation. Un essai passionnant, inspiré par un humanisme et une lucidité qui emportent l'adhésion
