It is abundantly clear while reading through the discourses of Venerable Ajahn Chah , that he was living Dhamma , and had mastered and perfected the Noble Eight Fold path to its very pinnacle .
Sometime ago i came across knowing about the difficult last years that Venerable Ajan Chah , went through . As i walked down a strewn garden path , recollecting that what i had read , there was salt trickling down the eyes , the drops were not due to any sadness or pain in knowing this , but rather a confidence in the Noble Eight Fold Path , and the trail blazing life lived by the Venerable One . Unshakeable is the confidence of the Triple Gem .
It is said , Wisdom is to know things in different ways , all the gem studded discourses of the Venerable Ajahn Chah , point out such .
The Path of Dhamma
The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!
