Matthieu Ricard

Buddhist monk

Matthieu Ricard is a Buddhist monk, humanitarian, writer, photographer, doctor in cellular genetics, and the French interpreter for the Dalai Lama. All of his royalties are donated to Karuna-Shechen, the humanitarian association he created twenty-two years ago, which benefits more than 450,000 underprivileged people every year in India, Nepal, and Tibet.

Their Story

Matthieu Ricard shares how he learned to stop trying to analyze the compassionate power behind the world’s greatest mindfulness practitioners, and instead let his mind experience and absorb it.
