Introduction

This is the kind of book you can open anywhere and, hopefully, after browsing a bit, over a page or two, find an idea of interest to you. You shouldn't read it cover-to-cover, through and through, because the overall-jumble-of-ideas would only confuse you.

Introduction

This book was compiled with five persons in mind:

The first, Wichat Burannaprasertsook, was doing his doctorate in linguistics at Chulalongkorn University and planning to ordain as a monk as soon as possible thereafter.

The second and third were senior teaching monks at Wat Thamyaiprick: Pra Zaeo and Pra Wichai, who would visit my kuti every evening for discursive talk on the Dhamma.

Pra Zaeo shared with me an interest in texts from the Pali Canon. Pra Wichai was not as interested in texts as he was in the practical applications of vipassana meditation.
