Gelong Thubten

Buddhist Monk, Meditation Teacher and Author

If you could give one piece of advice to every single person in the world, what would it be?
We can train our minds to choose happiness and freedom... we don't have to be so controlled by our thoughts and emotions. 

What is your happiness hack?
Meditation and mindfulness!

Whats your biggest struggle, and what do you do to work on it?
I have a very intense schedule, and I do get tired, but if I practice tiny moments of mindfulness many times throughout the day, that changes everything.
