"Part history book, part travelogue, part spiritual teaching, this wonderful book is like a window into another world. In the Cool Shade of Compassion shares an important and fascinating view into both human experience and human nature. This book arose at the intersection of careful scholarship and good storytelling and helps us shape our own view of the world." --Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Love "This is one of the most remarkable, honest, and rich accounts of how Theravada Buddhism actually flourished in Thailand. It gives us a new picture of the true breadth and fullness of the tradition in every part of life."--Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart
