Richard's head was attached to the 256 sensor which found that his mind is very bright when it is in a state of meditation on compassion. As research results show in those moments the brain creates the level of gamma waves never before published in neurological literature. They are associated with consciousness, attention, learning and memory.
It also showed a large activity in the left prefrontal cortex of the brain, which allows neuobičaeno large capacity for happiness and a reduced propensity towards negativity. I Ricard says that sometimes meditates and all day, but he does not get bored, and to consider the generally happy person even though for him the title of 'the happiest man in the world' exaggeration of the media.
Matthieu Ricard recently told Business Insider at the World Economic Forum in Davos, giving advice on how to be happy.

He says when we experience a sense of joy and love that is transient and then something else happens and we go to the next thought. Instead needs to concentrate and not to let anything interfere with our mind. Focus on the positive emotions in a certain period of time.
If you do this every day for fifteen minutes, and so two weeks, you will begin to notice positive mental results. Imagine just what are the results after a few years. You can master the happiness, all is supported by neuroscience.
Ricard also said we had to stop often to utter the word 'I'. He explains how constantly thinking about yourself, and how to do everything better for themselves, exhausting and very stressful because eventually leads to dissatisfaction.
"The whole world then watching as a threat or an interest in yourself," he explains, adding that if we want to be happy we need to be well-intentioned. You'll feel better about yourself and we will do other happy. Your mind and body will be cleaner and healthier.
How to bring your mind to this state? Constant exercise, as to fitness and conditioning training for a marathon. So kindness, attention and emotional balance are also skills that can be trained and to which we should strive.
