Jan 12, Krishna Puri rated it it was amazing What a wonderful book this is.. Jun 23, marina rated it it was amazing Life is simple, and Ajahn Brahm knows it.

A series of short, inspiring, funny stories reminds you what living is all about and makes you go back to it over and over again. As a western teacher with a strong wry sense of British humor, and a playful attitude towards the Western revered attitudes toward success and settlement I find his teachings both insightful and motivating. I listened to this as an audiobook..

An essential teacher. Many are modern interpretations or anecdotes from his own life which he relates to ancient teachings. Many will leave you in stitches as he makes great use of humour to get the point across. I am not a Buddhist, but loved this book and the wisdom he expounds. Highly recommended for anyone who sees the two crooked bricks in their wall instead of all the rest that are laid perfectly read the book to In this great little book Ajahn Brahm regales us with often extremely funny Buddhist stories.

A few of the stories make reference to earlier ones in the book but as each is a maximum of 3 pages long you can easily flick back and read those too. Some made me laugh out loud and others made me stop and think. Jan 25, Suresh rated it liked it The human being has a fascination with stories. This collection of stories kept me acutely interested to garner wisdom, interest and application into my life. In particular, the story that relates to the title, inspires in me that the door of my heart can be opened to many aspects of life, including acceptance and pain.
