Meditation has been credited for a myriad of great benefits to the people who practice it. It helps people do everything from overcoming addiction to attaining success and improving health. I say that meditation is even more powerful. You see, all these things are two-dimensional at best.

They combine body and mind only, leaving out the third, even more powerful component of the self-called the soul/spirit. The thing that hardly anyone ever notices is that the chief cause of stress is an imbalance in the self.

This self comprises body, mind, and soul. When you leave one out, you will struggle to be complete. Leave out more than one aspect of the self andwell, it will not be pretty. In this book, I have put together a complete guide to stress-free living by combining meditation with Buddhist teachings for total harmony in every area of your life.

I have also incorporated deep truths about stress within the book. Some of these lessons include:Regardless of what most people claim, stress is an emotion that you can control. The environment and things happening around you do not bring you stress.

A new book of sketches, artwork, and personal reflection from the brilliant mind of award-winning, bestselling author and illustrator Shaun Tan.”I’m often wary of using the word ‘inspiration’ to introduce my work – it sounds too much like a sun shower from the heavens, absorbed by a passive individual enjoying an especially receptive moment.

While that may be the case on rare occasions, the reality is usually far more prosaic. Staring at a blank piece of paper, I can’t think of anything original. I feel utterly uninspired and unreceptive. It’s the familiar malaise of ‘artist’s block’ and in such circumstances there is only one thing to do: just start drawing.” – Shaun TanAnd when Shaun Tan starts drawing, the results are stunning.

In The Bird King: An Artist’s Notebook, we find a window into the creative process: the stops and starts, the ideas that never took off, and the ones that grew into something much bigger. Fans of The Arrival will recognize the quirky, surreal sensibility that is so distinctly Shaun Tan in this stunning collection, and gain insight into how his many gorgeous books were made.
