Luang Por Sumedho has been practicing as a Buddhist monk for over fifty years. He shares the insights and experience he has developed investigating the Four Noble Truths, offering a perspective on the world that points to liberation rather than entanglement and confusion. His encouragements to cultivate wise intuitive awareness are moving, humorous, refreshing and enlightening.
Ajahn Sumedho is abbot of Amaravati Buddhist Centre (www.amaravati.org) and senior-most western disciple of the late Thai meditation master Ajahn Chah. Amaravati is affiliated with the Forest Sangha—a worldwide community following Chah’s Thai Forest tradition.
Ajahn Sumedho has worked closely with lay organizations, notably the English Sangha Trust, and with his disciples to set up a British Theravadin monastic order. This order now numbers sixty monks and nuns within several monasteries.
