"A Still Forest Pool" (audio)

Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery, May 16, 2019; Ellie Askew, Dhr. Seven, Wisdom Quarterly

BOOK READING: A Still Forest Pool
(Abhayagiri Sangha) Ven. Nisabho reads the following selections from A Still Forest Pool, an early compilation of Ajahn Chah's teachings arranged and published by Jack Kornfield and Paul Breiter:
  • The Simple Path, p. 5
  • Buddhist Psychology, p. 12
  • Thieves in Your Heart, p. 21
  • Problems of the World, p. 40
  • Don't Imitate, p. 66
  • Who is Sick?, p. 87
  • Some Hints on Practicing, p. 97
The conversation following the readings touches on how the book was compiled, the influence it had on Ajahn Nyaniko's path to monasticism, and whether or not it was a book offered to a retreatant on a plane flight. This reading was offered on March 23, 2019 at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery, Northern California.
