TORONTO, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tergar Canada (TC) is privileged to officially host the first Canadian tour of the 7 Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. The visit began with a warm welcome upon his arrival at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport on June 14. Mingyur Rinpoche will bestow teachings and share his wisdom on meditation before proceeding to Montreal, Quebec.  

Born in 1975 in the Himalayan border regions between Tibet and Nepal, son of the renowned meditation master Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a much-loved and accomplished Tibetan Buddhist meditation teacher. With a rare ability to present the ancient wisdom of Tibet in a fresh, engaging manner, Rinpoche's profound teachings and playful sense of humor have endeared him to students around the world. His first 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.

Dubbed ‘the happiest man in the world’ in 2002 following his participation in a study of brain activity at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, scientists found that advanced meditation increases mental happiness.  At the request of His Holiness the 14 Dalai Lama, Mingyur Rinpoche, along with other long-term meditators, participated in this ground-breaking research which made a key contribution to the explosion in the science of meditation and mindfulness and its current popularity. Mingyur Rinpoche continues to be involved in and contributes actively to the vibrant dialogue between Western science and Buddhism. He is an advisor to the Mind and Life Institute and participates as a research subject in the ongoing studies of the neural and physiological effects of meditation.

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche will give teachings on the “Triple Empowerment of the Three Wrathful Protection Deities”, “Meditation and a Loving Heart Living with Awareness, Compassion, and Wisdom” and, “Meditation & the Joy of Living”.
