These 100 plus teaching stories make for great reflections, whether or not you are a Buddhist (I am not). Humorous, realistic and very concrete and earthy, Ajahn Brahm is teaching everyone who reads this collection or views some of his Youtube talks how to be mindful, compassionate, and perhaps even holy.

One does not have to be a Buddhist -- or even have any interest in Buddhism -- to appreciate the 108 stories in this book. Grouped under headings like "Perfection and Guilt," "Love and Commitment," "Creating Happiness," and "The Mind and Reality," each little story, taken either from Buddhist tradition or the author's personal experience, provides both education and laughter. Especially the laughter. Who knew death could be funny?

Ajahn Brahm, a former Londoner and graduate of Cambridge, has been a monk for over 30 years and currently serves as abbot for an Australian monastery. His skill in translating an Eastern philosophy into terms that a Westerner can understand is what makes this book work. It is delightful. ( )
