    In Happiness, Matthieu Ricard demonstrated that true happiness is not tied to fleeting moments or sensations, but is an enduring state of soul rooted in mindfulness and compassion for others. Now he turns his lens from the personal to the global, with a rousing argument that altruism - genuine concern for the well-being of others - could be the saving grace of the 21st century. It is, he believes, the vital thread that can answer the main challenges of our time.

    "By happiness I mean here a deep sense of flourishing that arises from an exceptionally healthy mind. This is not a mere pleasurable feeling, a fleeting emotion, or a mood, but an optimal state of being. Happiness is also a way of interpreting the world, since while it may be difficult to change the world, it is always possible to change the way we look at it" Matthieu Ricard

    Si apprendre à méditer est un cheminement que même les plus grands sages suivent tout au long de leur vie, s'y exercer au quotidien transforme déjà notre regard sur nous-mêmes et sur le monde. Tel est le propos de cet essai très accessible, à la fois guide spirituel et philosophique et initiation concrète à la pratique de la méditation. Riche de sa double culture, de son expérience de moine, de sa connaissance des textes sacrés et de sa fréquentation des maîtres, Matthieu Ricard montre les bienfaits évidents que l'exercice de la méditation peut apporter à chacun dans notre société ultra-individualiste et matérialiste.

    De l'altruisme ou de l'égoïsme, lequel prédomine ? L'opinion prépondérante ne laisse pas de doute. Les lois de l'économie, les a priori judéo-chrétiens, ou plus simplement encore les perceptions du quotidien établissent l'égoïsme comme la base évidente de nos comportements et de nos décisions. L'altruisme est posé sur un tel piédestal qu'il en devient inaccessible.
