noble strategy essays on the buddhist path Reviews
This book was written to "sell" Buddhist practices to Westerners. I've found it immensely helpful in thinking about such things as true happiness, karma, right speech, meditation, mindfulness, emptiness and other notions of Buddhism which I'd heard of but never looked at closely until now. The copy I have is in good condition. There is no ISBN number or publisher identified. At the end of the book I notice the following: Inquiries concerning this book may be sent to The Abbott/Metta Forest Monastery/PO Box 1409/Valley Center CA 92082. I was lucky to find the copy I have at the local Salvation Army store. The Introduction is dated August 1999. The author's name, Thanissaro Bhikkhu, is given in translation as Geoffrey DeGraff. At the bottom of the title page is printed "FOR FREE DISTRIBUTION". From the Introduction: "The essays in this book present views on basic elements in the Buddhist path - the attitudes, concepts, and practices that lead to total freedom for the mind. If the views are right, they themselves form a part of the path. Thus, in learning how to make best use of these essays, it's important to understand how views function in bringing about freedom."
This collection of essays by Thanissaro Bhikkhu is very well-selected. It's definitely not for the total newbie to buddhism, as it assumes one already knows all the basics - this is a book for buddhists who are already versed in all the basics (path, truths, precepts, perfections, etc).That's not to say someone newer won't benefit, as it has all sorts of useful stuff even a beginner can glean learning from - but like nearly all Thanissaro's work, it doesn't pull punches and isn't softened for the "McMindfulness" crowd. This is no-nonsense, efficient Theravada teaching. For the enthusiastic beginner or the intermediate, this is a good dharma supplement. It probably won't change your life, but it will give you plenty of good teachings to read, if you "dwell in the dharma" and thus read dharma all the time - as will the other four books in the Essays series.

I always like his writings.
Ajahn Thanissaro is a master of words, wisdom and meditation. This book is a treasure for anyone new to the Dhamma, or even someone quite seasoned.
