Happiest Man in the world
What if I told you there was a man who had unlocked all the secrets to human joy? What if I told you that despite all the pain and suffering and all the bad news out there, a monk on the mountaintop in Nepal has discovered the most-simple template to be happy.
To researchers, he is the world’s most joyful man. His level of mind control is surprising and the neurotic calm in his cerebrum are off the scale.
Presently Matthieu Ricard, 60, a French scholastic turned-Buddhist minister, is to share his dream to make the world a happier place. The trick, he believes, is to put some exertion into it. Fundamentally, Happiness is an “aptitude” to be scholarly.
When the whole universe is concerned about World war III and filled with animosity towards each other, Matthieu Richard has completed 10,000 hours of meditation.
Born and Brought up around Philosophical ideologies in France, Matthieu Ricard is a Ph.D holder in molecular genetics from Pasteur University in 1972. Post his doctoral degree, he decided to leave it all, so he moved to India and lived in Himalyas. Following the death of his master, he completely devoted his life to fulfill the missions his master had envisioned.
Now he stays at a monastery in Tibet and have encountered a gigantic level of “positive feelings” in the left pre-frontal cortex of the mind, which is related with joy. The right-hand side, which handles negative contemplations, is stifled
“The brain is flexible,” Mr Ricard revealed to The Independent on Sunday yesterday. “Our life can be extraordinarily changed by even an insignificant change by the way we deal with our contemplations and translate the world. Satisfaction is an aptitude. It requires exertion and time.”
Mr Ricard was raised among Paris’ scholarly first class in the 1960s, yet subsequent to working for a PhD in biochemsitry he surrendered his recognized scholastic profession to think about Tibetan Buddhism in the Himalayas.
People argue that being a monk and getting away from all the responsibilities does make a man happier, he has nothing to worry about. But leaving a settled life, a secure future and all the loved ones is a courageous act in itself.
