Ajahn Amaro is abbot of the Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in southeast England and author of numerous books and articles on Buddhist themes across traditions. Born in England in 1956, Ven. Amaro received his BSc. in Psychology and Physiology from the University of London. He studied Buddhism in Thailand in the Forest Tradition and was ordained as a bhikkhu by Thai meditation master Ajahn Chah at Wat Pah Nanachat in 1979.

In simple and direct terms, this book guides the reader to accept "what is happening now", whether or not it is liked or disliked. Accept it for what it is, without grasping or pushing away. Brings the teachings to life. It's like this - whatever "it" is.

A wonderful dhamma bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 February 2015
A wonderful dhamma book; this collection includes a number of gems. Ajahn Sumedho takes a very direct, down-to-earth, but powerful approach in expressing the dhamma - the 'way it is' - and provides a number of helpful suggestions for reflection.
