What would life be like if each one of us chose compassion over anger, loving-kindness over hatred, awareness over ignorance? The Mind and the Way demonstrates a radically simple approach to life, one in which we are able to awaken to our true loving nature and delight in the mystery and wonder of the world. With warmth and a wonderful sense of humor, Ajahn Sumedho draws on the experiences of ordinary life to convey Buddhist insights that for 2,500 years have continued to remain vital and pertinent to our lives.
"The Mind and the Way is a wonderfully accessible and compassionate expression of the Buddha's teachings. Ajahn Sumedho's exemplary life illuminates this timeless transforming wisdom, and the simple clarity of his words help light our own spiritual journey. A good book for us all."
– Joseph Goldstein, author of A Heart Full of Peace
"With its humorous observations upon his early days in Thailand, Sumedho's work is acutely practical and easy to read. Highly recommended."
