'Thubten is a very generous and kind monk who writes with the lived honesty and humour of someone who has experienced the wisdom he shares. His writing is full of inspiration but also the pragmatism needed to form a sustainable practice. His book clearly illustrates why we all need meditation and mindfulness in our lives.' * Benedict Cumberbatch *
'Gelong Thubten's book is as warm, wise and generous as the man himself. We've never needed a voice like his more.' * Melanie Reid, The Times *
