A great work that explains the Buddhist path to westerners in particular.

Ajahn writes of disappearing through meditation as the only way to free ourselves from suffering and the merits of this practice, which places the emphasis of mediation on the breath. We simply watch the breath and settle into meditation.

Ajahn also teaches mindfulness, which I now understand along with a buddhist view of the world.

Its a radical way of viewing our lives, with my experience of life thus far I find myself drawn to this path.

Ven. Ajahn Brahm not only has a deep understanding of dhamma, but also a clear way of explaining it. I find his teaching style to be simple and light but at the same time deep and subtle. His ability to convey the deep dhamma in a relatively smooth way is much appreciated. All these qualities are found everywhere in this book. The use of 'pali' word along with the English explanation throughout this book makes it easier for someone who is familiar with the pali terms. This book contains an essence of deep Buddha dhamma and mindfullness meditation. Anyone wishing to read about deep dhamma and practising meditation, this book can be a great companion. I highly recommend this book.

I find the talks of Ajahn Brahm to be inspiring and always relevant to my life and practice. As this book is a transcript of Dharma talks given by Ajahn Brahm then it is no surprise that I found the book inspiring and relevant. Despite the subject being very subtle it is written clearly and with humour. Anyone who meditated will find this guide useful. Thank you Ajahn Brahm

An amazingly insightful book explaining in a simple and clear way exactly how the path of Buddhism and meditation leads to greater happiness and eventually enlightenment. One of the best books I've ever read. Inspirational and highly recommended.

Ajahn Brahm is my favorite meditation teacher, and this is a nice compilation of his talks - if you're familiar with his 'work', you'll love it.
