Living Dharma

Teachings and Meditation Instructions from Twelve Theravada Masters

In this book, Jack Kornfield presents the heart of Buddhist practice as taught by twelve highly respected masters from Southeast Asia. Here, renowned teachers such as Mahasi Sayadaw, U Ba Khin, Mohnyin Sayadaw, and Achaan Maha Boowa describe a rich variety of meditation techniques—practices that can lead to the dissolution of a limited sense of self, an awakening of insight, compassion for all beings, and the realization of Nirvana. In other chapters, Achaan Chaa, Achaan Buddhadasa, and Sunlun Sayadaw offer practices clarifying the essential attitude that will allow each person to discover the truth of the Buddha’s teaching here and now—the living Dharma. The book also provides teachings on the basic tenets of Buddhism and a look at the Buddhist tradition as taught in Burma, Thailand, and Laos. It also includes a new introduction by Jack Kornfield.
