Publisher's Summary

Here are modern tales of happiness, compassion and love that will both enlighten and entertain. During his wanderings and work over the last 30 years as a Buddhist monk, Ajahn Brahm has gathered many poignant, funny and profound stories. While traditional Buddhist philosophy is at the heart of this collection, these thoughtful stories are written like playful parables, which are used to launch into a deeper exploration of subjects such as mindfulness, suffering, forgiveness, hope, wisdom, and unconditional love. Told with wit and good humor, they reveal moments of compassion in the lives of ordinary people and the timeless wisdom of the Buddha's teachings.

Listen and change your perspective

This changed my perspective on who, I thought, a buddhist can be. They can be funny, they can swear and call people names, and they can be interesting. The stories changed my perspective on the way I view people and view life. I laughed and teared up in some parts. The narrator was excellent. He wasn't just reading. He put feeling into the moments and you can picture a person in certain stories (their faces and expressions, etc). This is the first time I actually rated an audiobook with 5 stars across the board.
