The talks presented here were given exclusively for the benefit of the monks at Wat Pa Baan Taad. They usually took place in the cool of the evening, with lamps lit and the sounds of insects and cicadas reverberating in the surrounding jungle. Ajaan Mahā Boowa’s only preparation was a few moments of stillness before speaking. As the theme developed naturally, the pace of his voice quickened and those listening increasingly felt its strength and depth.
