A book is like a friend. We understand the world and life, or even observe ourselves through texts, and have a deep realization of oneself that we are not alone. PMQ invites different people from design and culture sectors to recommend a book, so that you can enrich yourselves as book therapy.

Why would you recommend this book?

Beely Daily: In the era of a chaotic and ever-changing world, how do we get by?

Accomplished meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche reflects himself in four and a half years and shows us how we can transform our fear of dying into joyful living.

Buddhist Master is utterly human and has various emotions: disgust, restlessness, fear, discomfort and sufferings, just like everyone else.

“In Love with the World: A Monk’s Journey Through the Bardos of Living and Dying”

Author: Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

He described the waves and clouds in life, mostly self-projected obsessions. In the struggle, people have forgotten what is buried beneath and behind, it has always been a calm deep sea and sky. In a near-death experience, he realised that complying with the changing nature of life is the best way to rest his mind.There is no need to smooth the waves or erase the dense clouds. Learning to open your heart, perceive yourself, and face it, despite the ups and downs, live with them with strength. That is how we can be brave.
