Summary

2021 Audiobook of the Year - The British Book Awards.

The Sunday Times number one best seller.

Jay Shetty, social media superstar and host of the number one podcast ‘On Purpose’, distils the timeless wisdom he learned as a practising monk into practical steps anyone can take every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.

Over the past three years, Jay Shetty has become a favourite in the hearts and minds of millions of people worldwide. One of his clips was the most watched video on Facebook last year, with over 360 million views. His social media following totals over 32 million, he has produced over 400 viral videos, which have amassed more than 5 billion views, and his podcast, ‘On Purpose’, is consistently ranked the world’s #1 health-related podcast.

In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us.

The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can – and should – think like a monk

Chicken Soup for the Soul

In the spirit of the book I want to express gratitude to Jay and thank him for writing this wonderful book, for living your experiences and sharing them with the world in such a soothing, articulate and captivating way.

If you are really feeling lost and unfulfilled in the chaos of modern life this book is the answer. You need to approach the book with an open mind and have a willingness to really change your mindset, which isn't always going to be easy. I have read many many many "self help" books which are great for more practical and immediate fixes to your woes, however this book is really aimed at long term proper life fulfilment. The ideas and practices are both radical yet simple and basic and by just listening to Jay's sweet voice I could feel myself becoming calmer, happier and filled with motivation to live a life that that is filled with purpose and goodness, because what he says just makes sense.

There is a LOT to digest and it is a long book, and having just finished it I feel compelled to start it over again right away, this time sitting down and taking proper notes and really putting each section into practice in my daily life because I found that the minute I took a break from the book or went on to a different chapter my "monkey mind" would slip back into it's old ways of thinking, however Jay's voice would be lurking in the back of my head guiding me down a different path. I think by listening to this a few times that voice would become clearer and clearer until it became your automatic way of thinking.

I wish the whole world could listen to this book and take on it's advice because that is the kind of world I want to live in.

A fascinating and enlightening book.

I loved this from the get go, it makes so much sense and consolidates the ideas from a few books that I have read recently.
It's written in an accessible manner and doesn't over-complicate the ideas and theories covered in the book.
Shetty's delivery and expression brings the book to life and keeps you engaged.
I have been listening to this during my early morning walks and I will miss his voice and narration. I may even listen to it again in the not too distant future.
