Straight from the Heart
Author: Ajaan Mahā Boowa Ñānasampanno
Translator: Ajaan Geoff Ṭhānissaro
This collection of talks was originally given for the benefit of a lay disciple who had come to Ajaan Mahā Boowa’s monastery to receive his guidance as she faced her approaching death from bone marrow cancer. These talks offer important lessons about how to learn from pain, illness and death, by seeing through to their ultimate nature and detaching the mind from the suffering associated with them.
