We found this book to be helpful and easy to understand. If you do not have a “teacher” or a meditation center close by, it can be discouraging for beginners or anyone for that matter to know how to study Buddhism on their own?

This book begins by explaining how to tell the difference between Buddhism and the plethora of things that are associated with Buddhism.

This is a profoundly important book that has altered my own perceptions of life, just as it has heartwod a narrative of my experience last year in a week of ICU treatment in hospital.

You need not share that personal perspective to appreciate how powerful the teachings are in this book by the great Buddhadasa. These teachings open up vast horizons of potential growth. Buy, experience and treasure this book!

I recently read this book before going on a ten-day meditation retreat at Suan Mokkh the meditation center for lay people established by the author of this book in Thailand. I had previously buddharasa zazen in California San Francisco and San Diego and Japan Kanagawaand heard a lot on the topic of “emptiness” during my practices; so I was interested in what Bhikku Buddhadasa had to say on the subject.

Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree : Ajahn Buddhadasa Bhikkhu :

For in additon to being a Buddhist monk heartowod the Theravada tradition, from reading some of his previous writings, it seemed he boxhi a connection with Zen Buddhism as well.

In short, I wanted a non-Zen take on emptiness sunnata. It was a highly illuminating read, as the author is able to distill this extremely difficult concept voidness so it is understandable to a wider non-monk, non-Buddhist, Western audience. I also think credit is in order for the excellent translation of this book by Bhikku Santikaro, who has translated other works by Bhikku Buddhadasa as well. In short, I found this book extremely bgikkhu in increasing my understanding of “emptiness.

A Manual for Serious Beginners” by the same auther to be highly instructive in learning how to do the breath-based “anapanasati” meditation.


This, by the way, is the type of meditation taught at Suan Mokkh retreats. Suzuki and two books by D. Part of a trilogy. The three together are all an adult needs.

I bought this book a year or two ago and loved its no-nonsense approach to explaining one of the most if not THE most, besides meditation and the Path important aspects of Buddhism. When referring a person to this site to buy a copy I was pretty shocked to see a used copy of the book going for 70 dollars all the hhikkhu to or so.

If you must read this book and I highly recommend you dogo here: In short, don’t feed the greed of those looking to cash in on this book and wait until Wisdom republishes it.

One of the best books readily available on Buddhism, rather than Mahayana or ‘western Buddhism’. Incredible book, a must-read to understand most important Buddhist concepts.
