There is more to this book than I could ever cover in a review, This is the first time I have rated a book as 5-star.
Perhaps it was the time I read ajahhn, i. I’m not sure; but whatever the case, this book spoke to me in a special way. For one thing, I appreciated how Achaan Chah suggested that many, if not all, great world religions have much in common. As a Christian, I found myself calling to mind some words of Jesus that paralleled some words of the Buddha.
Still Forest Pool: The Insight Meditation of Achaan Chah by Ajahn Chah
Of course, there are many differences between the teachings of Jesus and Buddha. Foest there are many similarities. When Achaan Chah wrote of material things being empty and impermanent, I thought of Jesus telling his followers to not ” When I began reading Buddhist writings awhile ago, I was interested in Buddhism forets a way to help deepen my practice of meditation and prayer. This volume by Achaan Chah offers that kind of help and more. It is impossible to describe the far-reaching impact that Ajahn Chah has had over time.
The legacy he has bequeathed is always inspiring, and this beautiful book is no exception. What sets him apart from so many other enlightened minds, was his simple, yet pointed, use of language.
His humility was deep, yet infused with clarity and awareness. I found this book so encouraging in my own practice. It really is a must have. You will not regret buying it. One ajanh found this helpful. I am new to Theravadin Buddhism but not to Buddhism itself. This book has nearly answered all of the questions I had during my 12 years as a Mahayanist. Ajahn Chah explains everything in simple, everyday language which is what I really like.
He goes right to the heart of the teaching and makes it so easy. He also has quite a sense of humor. I would highly recommend this publication stil a Buddhist of any denomination. This book is a collection of short dharma talks given by meditation master Achaan Chah.
Achaan Chah was abbot of one of the largest monastery complexes in the Thai Forest tradition. He welcomed and trained many western seekers who later returned to the west, becoming influential dharma teachers in their own right.
In this book, Achaan Chah largely eschews “theory” in favor of encouraging his students to practice. Don’t expect academic discourses on Buddhist psychology or other esoteric topics. These talks are short rarely more than a couple of pagesdirect, and very inspiring.
Take your time reading this book. If you allow yourself a little time to digest the meaning of each piece, you might experience more benefit than attempting to read the book through in one sitting.
I have purchased several simply to have them available to pass on the friends and strangers when the spirit moves me. Achaan Cha offers teaching in a simple, clear, direct chzh. His words evoke quiet peace and joy as they bring the reader to recognize the beauty of our ordinary lives and the great treasure of being able to live simply and consciously.
