Product description

Review

"[A] refreshing look at love as a daily practice…Shetty combines spiritual wisdom and down-to-earth guidance in a surprisingly seamless way, making for lessons that have real staying power. Those looking to start or strengthen relationships will find this well worth a look." Publisher's Weekly

“An excellent guide to rising in love to joy and fulfillment.” 
Deepak Chopra

“In this insightful, myth-shattering book, Jay Shetty combines ancient wisdom and modern science to show how we can find -- in ourselves and others -- the love we all deserve.”
Lori Gottlieb

"Jay's ability to write with such truth and wisdom when it comes to love and life is masterful. Somehow a topic that has always felt larger than I could handle now feels within reach. This book left me feeling confident and clear about how to move through Love with grace." 
Shawn Mendes

"Jay’s great book provides real and heartfelt solutions to the complex problems that arise around love. I wish I’d been able to read it when I was young and chasing love and I’m grateful I’ve read it now - you will be too." 
Russell Brand

"This is not a book of pick up lines or dos and don'ts of dating. 
8 Rules of Love is honest and filled with wisdom I've never encountered before. The next time you're tempted to ask your hot mess friend for relationship advice, pick this book up instead." Lilly Singh

Author Jay Shetty aims to elevate us from the negativity, anxiety, and hopelessness of today’s

world in his book THINK LIKE A MONK: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every Day, to be

published by Simon and Schuster on April 14. Drawing on both Jay’s experience as a monk in a

Hindu ashram and his post-monk life as an influential thinker and spiritual guide, Think Like a

Monk distills monk wisdom into practical, everyday steps anyone can take to live a less anxious,

more meaningful life.

How can we transform our experience of life today? Jay says, “When I trained as a monk, I

found that monks are able to remain centered and calm amid all the chaos that life throws at

us. Monks are the absolute experts in mastering their minds. I wrote THINK LIKE A MONK in

order to help everyone access the same mindset, the same thinking patterns, the same

processes that help monks find peace, balance, and purpose.”

Like his monk teachers, Jay draws from the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Indian text based on the

Upanishads, writings from around 800-400 BCE. In a world where people are constantly looking

for answers, Jay believes the wisdom for how to find peace and purpose has been here all

along.

***

Born in north London in 1987, Jay and his sister were raised in a middle-class Indian family.

Until the age of 14, Jay did well in school, stayed out of trouble and tried his best to live up to

his parents’ high expectations. But he was a shy, introverted young boy who was bullied for

being overweight and a little nerdy. When he started secondary school, things changed. He

began playing soccer and rugby, became more popular, and started mixing with the wrong

crowd. Jay’s thrill-seeking ventures got him suspended from school more than once as he tried

to find his identity.

By the time he got to college at Cass Business School in London in 2007, Jay had shifted his

curiosity in more productive directions. He was reading autobiographies of everyone from

Malcolm X to David Beckham, driven to understand the roots of success and making a

difference in the world. Still, when a friend invited him to hear a monk give a talk, he agreed to

go only if his friend would join him at a club afterward.

That night, the monk, Gauranga Das, spoke about the principle of self-sacrifice. He talked about

how people should plant trees under whose shade they do not plan to sit. This was a

transformative moment for Jay. He’d been focused on the success of people who’d gone from

nothing to something—rags-to-riches stories—but this man had done the opposite. And yet he

appeared joyous, confident, and at peace. “He was saying that the greatest thing you can do

with your talents and your skills is to use them in the service of others,” Shetty, now 32, told

People magazine. For Jay, this was a completely new idea of success.

In the community where Jay grew up, it was expected that he would become one of three

things: a doctor, a lawyer, or a failure. When he headed to India to study with monks, his family

was convinced he had chosen option three.

After graduating from college in 2010 with a 1 st class Bachelor of Science degree with Honors in

Behavioral Science, Jay traded his suits for robes, shaved his head, and moved to the ashram,

where he slept on the floor and lived out of a gym locker. Half the day was spent on personal

growth, meditating for hours and studying ancient scriptures. The rest of the time was spent

helping others.

In the course of his studies, Jay was amazed to observe that the wisdom of the monks was as

relevant today as it was when it was first put in writing over 3000 years ago. Then, after three

years as a monk in ashrams in London and Mumbai, one of his teachers told him that he would

have more impact on the world if he left the monk’s path to share his experience and wisdom

with others. This advice was crushing—Jay thought he was going to be a monk for the rest of

his life. In debt, with no employable skills on his resume, he moved back home to north London

with his parents. “Everything I'd learned was tested in that moment,” Jay says of the transition.

“I had to figure out how to put everything I'd learned into practice in the real world.”

Shetty reconnected with old school friends—many working for some of the world’s largest

corporations—who were experiencing tremendous stress, pressure, and unhappiness, and they

invited Shetty to coach them on well-being, purpose, and mindfulness. Jay says, “Very quickly I

realized that a big part of my passion and purpose is to serve and give the wisdom I’ve learned

with others. I started small. For almost a decade I shared my thoughts on psychology,

spirituality, philosophy, and behavioral science at universities, local events, and in small groups

in London. Three years ago I moved to New York, then Los Angeles, and began to present the

wisdom and lessons I had learned from my amazing mentors and coaches online through video.

My intention was to share wisdom with more people so they would see there were other

people out there like them, and it would make a difference. And it did.” 

***

Since launching his video channel in 2016, Jay has produced over 400 videos, which have

amassed more than 6.5 billion views and gained over 34 million followers globally. In 2017, he

was named in the Forbes magazine 30-under-30 for being a game-changer in the world of

media. In 2018, he had the #1 video on Facebook with over 360 million views. Jay was the cover

of the November 2019 issue of Adweek and was a People Magazine “one to watch” in

December 2019.

On his podcast, On Purpose, every Monday Jay conducts an hour long interview with a

different inspirational guest. Past guests include Kobe Bryant, Jada Pinkett Smith, Russel Brand,

Novak Djokovic, Khloe Kardashian, and Ray Dalio. Every Friday Jay gives his own guidance on a

topic such as procrastination, confidence, or decision-making.

The podcast, launched in 2019, received 52 million audio downloads in its first year and over

ten million views in podcast videos. It won that year’s Shorty Award for Health and Wellness.

iTunes named On Purpose in their Top New Podcast’s of 2019 and consistently rank Jay as the

#1 Health Podcast. Spotify named Jay the #1 Podcast in India.

Jay’s message has resonated with companies such as Google, L’Oreal, Facebook, Coca Cola,

HSBC, EY, Microsoft and Accenture, who have invited him to lead seminars and deliver keynotes

on finding your purpose in the workplace, well-being for the future, and digital media strategy..

He’s become so much of a cultural phenomenon that he was even asked to portray a version of

himself in the “Bad Boys For Life” trailer with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

2020 will bring Jay’s message to a larger audience than ever with the publication of THINK LIKE

A MONK. In the book, Jay draws deeply from ancient wisdom, modern social science, and his

own rich experiences in the ashram to articulate a journey similar to the one he took. He guides

people step-by-step through the process of adapting to the monk mindset, first by letting go—a

cleansing to make space for growth; then by growing—reshaping your life to make decisions

with intention, purpose and confidence; and finally by giving—looking beyond yourself to

deepen gratitude and relationships. He says, “People need to go through experiences to learn,

so the book is full of practical exercises, activities, and experiments. Everything in this book is

something one can actually do in their own time at home, whether in the back of a car, on a

commute, walking the dog, or cooking.” Along the way, Jay proves that everyone can—and

should—think like a monk.

Simon & Schuster will publish the book in the US and Canada, and it will be published in more

than 30 countries worldwide. Simon & Schuster VP and Executive Editor Eamon Dolan says,

“Nobody makes the timeless feel more timely than Jay does. He makes ancient wisdom, which

often comes across as abstract, so clear, so inspiring, and so practical.”

Jay lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Radhi Devlukia Shetty, a plant-based dietitian and

Ayurvedic medicine enthusiast, to whom the book is dedicated. Jay enjoys listening to Drake at

the gym and nature sounds while meditating. He’s a Manchester United fan and really admired

Cristiano Ronaldo’s work ethic and determination on the pitch. Jay and Radhi love eating at

plant-based restaurants, visiting spas, and spending time outdoors cycling and in escape rooms.

“Jay Shetty shows you step by step how Self Power emerges when you shift your identity from

self image to self esteem. This book could change your life and move you from the hypnosis of

social conditioning to being the  creative architect of your life journey.”

— Deepak Chopra

“Grab this book, find a comfortable chair, and let Jay Shetty take you on a life-changing journey.

A gifted teacher, Jay guides us with warmth and clarity on a path to greater joy and purpose in

living, offering wisdom that we can put into practice right now.  You will want to share it with

everyone you love.”

I’ve read tons of marriage books but this one will blow you away! I found Jay Shetty on his On Purpose Podcast. I felt he was so knowledgeable and interesting to me that I bought Think Like a Monk. I was so inspired by that book that I still listen to a chapter a week on audio. I’ve listened for the past year. It’s been a slow, impactful healing that I needed to believe in myself. I also joined as a Genius member and wore out the 30 days free. I got overwhelmed with my finances so I canceled my membership. The more I started learning about finances is that my mindset was the number one key. They graciously took me back and the Genius team helped me with my app and new phone. It’s by far been my best investment! Today I have more in the bank than I ever have. I have sacrificed, work hard, and kept seeking knowledge. I used Jay, Mel R, Lewis Howes, Ed Mylett, Tom and Lisa Bilyeau. Guess what! They are friends and build each other up! Go follow all of them on social media!! Go buy ALL their books! These people don’t let excuses and fears control their life. I’m getting there one day at a time. I am grateful for the great progress I have made so far. ❤️❤️ 5 STAR Review. My 15 year wedding anniversary is in May 2023. I’m happy to have this book as a tool. Also, Rule #1 is a game changer. Jay provides it free on his podcast. The giving of love from this group of people will change the world!!!!!

As you start to read the book and start to understand what the author is saying you will feel a shift within yourself. I am only talking on my opinion on how I felt as i started to read. So much understanding and clarity comes with this book as well as some challenges that you may face in your life now and within yourself on a personally level. This book has reassured me that happiness has to come within before anything and love doesn’t just appear as it is in movies and on tv. There is nothing to dislike about this book so far. I will say hands down I have read “ Think like a monk” and that was a very good book and a eye opener into Jay Shetty life which made me shift my way of thinking much more. To say the less my husband was in the process of leaving to the army and we started to read “Think like a monk” and it set his mind to a complete focus as he left to boot camp and us seeing one another 8 months later. I will recommend both books!
