After becoming disillusioned with the world of academia, Ajahn Brahm trained as a monk under the esteemed Buddhist master Ajahn Chah. Now the abbot of one of the largest monasteries in the southern hemisphere, he lives in Serpentine, Australia. Jack Kornfield is the author of After the Ecstasy, the Laundry.
"Ajahn Brahm is the Seinfeld of Buddhism."--Sumi Loundon, editor of Blue Jean Buddha "Ajahn Brahm has not only provided great leadership for the Buddhist community, but has dedicated much of his time to helping the wider community with a strong sense of compassion, understanding and humour."--Vice-Chancellor Professor Lance Twomey, Curtin University "From the first word (meditation) to the last (Parinibbana), Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond is riveting, rollicking, and uncompromisingly "real." Ajahn Brahm's voice is utterly fresh. But watch out! In the greatest tradition of our beloved roshis and bhikkhus, it is also compelling and commanding. Readers seeking a sure guide to 'the bliss better than sex' will find it in this wonderful book."--Glenn Wallis, translator of The Dhammapada: Verses on the Way "Like a broom through cobwebs, Ajahn Brahm here sweeps away the mysteries surrounding the jhanas. Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond is salted with the illustrative, often witty life stories that Brahm is well known for, and he uses readily understandable language to explain what some teachers shy from. Finding this book is like finding an operator's manual for one's practice. Raising the bar for those serious about their practice, he scolds those who would 'dumb-down' nibbana and challenges us to reach for the ultimate happiness. Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond is a bold book, sure to be controversial."--John Roberts, Buddhist Council of the Northwest
