Doesn't anyone see
the turmoil in the Three Worlds
is due to endless delusion
once thoughts stop
the mind becomes clear
nothing comes or goes
neither birth nor death.
'Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung? Inspiring Stories for Welcoming Life's Difficulties'
By Ajahn Brahm (Author)
The 108 pieces in the international bestseller Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung? offer thoughtful commentary on everything from love and commitment to fear and pain. Drawing from his own life experience, as well as traditional Buddhist folk tales, author Ajahn Brahm uses over thirty years of spiritual growth as a monk to spin delightful tales that can be enjoyed in silence or read aloud to friends and family.
Featuring titles such as "The Two-Finger Smile" and "The Worm and His Lovely Pile of Dung," these wry and witty stories provide playful, pithy takes on the basic building blocks of everyday life. Suitable for children, adults, and anyone in between, this eloquent volume wraps insight and inspiration inside of a good old yarn.
