Oh and apologies for sounding like a spammer I was a bit excited!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Greetings,

It's a very good book, highly recommended - I have the Buddhist Publication Society edition.

Metta,

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

The time would not pass. Somebody was playing with the clocks, and not only the electronic clocks but the wind-up kind too. The second hand on my watch would twitch once, and a year would pass, and then it would twitch again.
There was nothing I could do about it. As an Earthling I had to believe whatever clocks said -and calendars.”

Thanks Bodom!

Bhante - To download the book, I just filled out the order form, then they sent me an email with a link at the bottom to download the PDF. Is that process not working for you?

Yes, it's a little confusing. You have to go through the ordering and checkout procedure, as if you are buying the book, including filling in an address and so on, even though the cost is $0. It's important you fill in your correct email address, since you get sent the download link!

sorry couldn't find the English version, but here is what they are saying:

Jane: A new and better life awaits you on our distant home planet, Blisstonia.
Homer Simpson: [gets given a leaflet] Hmm. Makes Sense.
Jane: We're having a free get-acquainted session at our resort this weekend.
Homer Simpson: How much is this free resort weekend?
Glen: It's free.
Homer Simpson: And when is this weekend?
Glen: It's this weekend.
Homer Simpson: Uh-huh. And how much does it cost?
Glen: Um, it's free.
Homer Simpson: I see. And when is it?
Glen: It's this weekend.
Homer Simpson: And what are you charging for this free weekend?
Bart Simpson: Come on, Dad. The team's arriving.
Homer Simpson: [being dragged away by Bart] It's free, right?
