Looking for a book

Postby bodom » Tue Feb 03, 2009 6:54 pm

I was hoping someone could help me find the book A Buddhist Way of Mental Training by Ven. Phra Tepvisuddhikavi.

The link to the online version is here: http://mahamakuta.inet.co.th/english/b-way.html

I know that this book was published in paperback but have not been able to find a copy online. Thanks!

you could even though you have found this one you are looking for, have it bound or self publish the Internet copy?
if you ever want a book on paper rather than the net or need to, go to Lulu.com it is quite cheep.

Seems quite good Manapa, have you used them much before?

I have had a stab at seeing how it works and it is all step by step, some small amount of IT knowledge and it is done, I believe it is easier with pdf rather than a word doc
