IN THIS VERY LIFE

The Liberation Teachings of the Buddha

Sayadaw U Pandita Kate Wheeler U Aggacitta

Burmese meditation master Sayadaw U Pandita shows us that freedom is as immediate as breathing, as fundamental as a footstep. In this book he describes the path of the Buddha and calls all of us to that heroic journey of liberation. Enlivened by numerous case histories and anecdotes, In This Very Life is a matchless guide to the inner territory of meditation—as described by the Buddha.
