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!

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

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.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

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
