Read full description of the books:
I received this book as a gift from Mr. Rik Foong for giving a speech about my life in mid-june in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! At first, I wasn't expecting this gift at all, once I received it and knew it was written by Ajahn Chah! I was surprised, because during my monkhood, he was one of the Monk that I impressed both his methods and the way he explained Buddhism in a simple way but yet remain exactly the same to Buddha's teachings! This book explain in simple ways as possible by using stories such as monkeys, water buffalo, groping for fish, the broken glass, and etc. These stories all linked to meditation and discernment!!!

Read information about the authorAjahn Chah was born in 1918 in a village located in the north-eastern part of Thailand. He became a novice at a young age and recieved higher ordination at the age of twenty. He followed the austere Forest Tradition for years, living in forests and begging for almsfood as he wandered about on mendicant pilgrimage.
He practised meditation under a number of masters, among whom was Ajahn Mun, a highly respected and accomplished meditation teacher of the time. Ajahn Mun had an indelible influence on Ajahn Chah, giving his meditation practice the direction and clarity that it lacked. Ajahn Chah later became an accomplished meditation teacher in his own right, sharing his realization of the Dhamma with those who sought it. The essence of his teaching was rather simple: be mindful, don't hang on to anything, let go and surrender to the way things are.
Ajahn Chah passed away in peace after a long bout of illness on January 16, 1992, at his home monastery, Wat Pah Pong, in Ubon Ratchatani.
