Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond

Postby Stiphan » Sat Jun 05, 2010 9:24 am

Has anyone read this book? What are your thoughts?

I'm thinking of buying it.

Also, if anyone can provide a link where I can buy it online in Euros (€), that would be much appreciated.

Many thanks!

lots of people here have worked with this book, try the meditation section, the non American version of this book (that i've seen) is called "Happiness Through Meditation"

If you like Ajahn Brahm's style of teaching and his interpretation of the Dhamma, go for it!
Let it come. Let it be. Let it go.

I know that the first few chapters are somewhere for free on the internet, but I really can't remember where right now. Might be worth looking at.

I have found it quite helpful at times, especially skipping back to the hindrances ;)

Having said that I have found his retreat talks even more helpful, those you can get from the BSWA site. However, this might have worked because I already covered basic ground with the book ;)

Typing in 'Ajahn Brahm' at YouTube will reveal loads of his talks...most from the Buddhist Society of Western Australia... :coffee:
