Stories from Buddhist teachings that will help readers to understand various situations in life, told in a contemporary style that is warm, light and often funny.

Born and educated in the West but trained in the Thai forest tradition, Ajahn Brahm has gathered many poignant, funny and profound stories in his nearly thirty years as a Buddhist monk.

In this collection there are many true-to-life tales which are used to launch into a deeper exposition of mindfulness, wisdom, love and compassion. Ajahn Brahm also relates wise words from his renowned teacher, Ajahn Chah.

In each story the raw edge of truth is evident. These modern tales of hope, forgiveness, freedom from fear and overcoming pain cleverly relate the timeless wisdom of the Buddha s teachings and the path to true happiness in a warm and accessible way.

About the Author

Ajahn Brahm regarded himself as a Buddhist at the age of sixteen and his interest in Buddhism and meditation flourished while studying Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University. Ajahn Brahm is now the Abbot of Odhinyana Monastery and the Spiritual Director of the Buddhist Society of Western Australia.
