“A wonderfully accessible and compassionate expression of the Buddha’s teachings and a good book for us all.”—Joseph Goldstein, author of The Experience of Insight and Insight Meditation


Buddhist Reflections on Life

Ajahn Sumedho

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.

about the author
The Mind and the Way

For nearly fifty years Ajahn Sumedho has embodied the Buddha’s way. As a young man he completed an M.A. at the University of California at Berkeley, was a medic in the Navy, and taught in the Peace Corps in Borneo. For twelve years, beginning in 1966, he studied closely with the renowned meditation master Ajahn Chah, who appointed him to be the first Western abbot of a Thai monastery. Now based in England, he is the spiritual head of a global community of monks and nuns.
