Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree: The Buddha's Teachings on Voidness
Synopses & Reviews
"In this remarkable book, Ajahn Buddhadasa teaches us beautifully, profoundly, and simply the meaning of sunnata, or voidness, which is a thread that links every great school of Buddhism....He teaches us the truth of this voidness with the same directness and simplicity with which he invites us into his forest."
-- from the foreword by Jack Kornfield
A beautiful teaching on the meaning of voidness: the thread that links all schools of Buddhism.
About the Author
Ajahn Buddhadasa (1906-93) is perhaps the most influential Buddhist teacher in the history of Thailand. In 1932 he founded Wat Suan Mokkhablarama, one of the first forest monasteries in Thailand. During his lifetime he was given eight honorary doctorates by Thai universities. Since the 1960s his work helped inspire a new generation of socially concerned individuals both in Thailand and throughout the world.
