The Mind And The Way

Buddhist Reflections on Life



A highly readable book offering not only an insider's perspective on many of the basic Buddhist teachings but also a radically simple approach to life.

The advice of the author in THE MIND AND THE WAY is to live simply, contemplate the way things are, and let go of suffering - all attractively clear concepts in these confused and anxious times. With warmth, compassion, and a sense of humour Ajahn Sumedho draws upon his own experience alongside centuries-old Theravadan Buddhist tradition to reveal how we can all free the mind and open the heart to discover peace in our everyday lives. For both the beginner seeking an introduction and the experienced practitioner seeking inspiration, THE MIND AND THE WAY is an invaluable resource.

A wonderfully accessible and compassionate expression of the Buddha's teachings. Ajahn Sumedho's exemplary life illuminates this timeless transforming wisdom, and the simple clarity of his words helps light our own spiritual journey. A good book for us all.
