“This was my first book in English, written while I was a novice at a temple in Bangkok in 1981. The monastic experiences taught me to have patience while struggling to survive at a time of crisis in life.”
Though this book was written over three decades ago, the content remains interesting for those wishing to know about the Buddhist way of life, especially of monks and novices at that time.
Even now some events remain relevant, so they will remain till the world ends. That is to say, the happiness and suffering of all beings on earth will exist in people’s minds forever. We will be free of this bondage only when we attain enlightenment (nibbana).
I am not an expert on Buddhism, but I’d like to share my old stories with my English-speaking friends who may like to know about the country that was formerly known as Siam.
