The story of two Buddhist monks who put their faith to the test and walk across the countryside with nothing but their robes and alms bowls, refusing to touch money. With some wise and often amusing encounters they offer a glimpse into a completely different way of life. Surviving purely at the hands of strangers, welcomed, ignored and sometimes threatened, they touch upon the lives of many, and move the hearts and minds of a few. Illustrated with coloured drawings and based on very real and true experiences gathered over years of direct experience, Woven together into episodes in a young monk s life training with his teacher.
Tim Price is a mindfulness and meditation teacher, writer and craftsman.
Following a number of years in an Architectural and design business he took 'early retirement' as a Buddhist monk, to follow a path which had fascinated him since his teenage years. After 14 years living in the robe he wrote "Blistered feet - Blissful mind".
He is now participating in a project bringing mindfulness into schools, and continues to guide friends on the Buddhist path at the Alokabodhi Buddhist group in Kent and at other centres in the UK and Europe.
