Synopsis: Sale edition. Ajahn Chah was a beloved Thai master whose teachings were refreshingly uncompromising in their clarity and certainty - the certainty of a practitioner who has achieved a deep understanding of the Buddha`s teachings. He influenced a generation of Western teachers including Ajahn Sumedho and Jack Kornfield.
In Being Dharma, Ajahn Chah gives a straightforward and accessible explication of the Buddhist path. He emphasises how we can free ourselves from emotional and psychological pain, offering practival help and encouragement and pointing out how unnecessary suffering is brought on oneself through taking oneself too seriously.
"It is a blessing to have this book, the meat and potatoes of Ajahn Chah`s teachings, where he takes the gloves off and challenges us to look at human life squarely."Jack Kornfield.
"Being Dharma is the crystal-clear Dharma from a teacher who has profoundly influenced so many who brought the teachings to this country. Ajahn Chah is truly the teacher of our teachers. This book is from a vessel so clear you can hear the Buddha`s tone of voice."Stephen Levine.
"The simple, direct, humerous, and profound teachings of Thai forest master Ajahn Chah have had a powerful impact. This long-awaited collection of his teachings is a wonderful gift to all students of Buddhadharma." Larry Rosenberg.
