Matthieu Ricard shares his thoughts on compassion as part of the TEDPrize@UN celebration of the Charter For Compassion.




As a molecular geneticist turned Buddhist monk, Ricard brings a wholly unique perspective to the practice of meditation. Often referred to as "the happiest man in the world," he advises us in the ways to imbue our lives with a true sense of serenity and fulfillment. His latest book is entitled 'Why Meditate?' and available via all major booksellers.

All of the author's proceeds from the sale of this book go to Karuna-Shechen, a humanitarian organization that he founded to provide primary health care and education for the underserved populations of the Himalayan region.
