I listened to "Opening the Door to Your Heart" today, while driving to and from a meeting some hours away. What a delightful book!
I thoroughly enjoy teaching tales, and found myself laughing aloud, nodding in agreement, deeply touched, surprised and even with tears in my eyes a couple of times.
I will certainly be listening to this book again, and will look for more of Ajahn Brahm's works.
The narration was done well.
The authors humour to life in all aspects.
The hidden trues within.
the joy of hearing being spoken with just love, it is an inspiration to the soul.
The stories of being a monk in the jungle with no help from the outside world and surviving.
It is a truly inspiriting book. Well worth the read.
Yes - a good way to look at issues in life.
A more positive way to approach to life.
Entertaining, although not outstanding.
No. Not extreme. I laughed at places and learned new ways to look a couple concepts.
This was one of the best spiritual readings I have read. I will be rereading soon. It was very inspiring.
The complete book was moving. Each lesson was inspiring.
Definitely a must read. It was awesome.
The fact that these are collected stories lends it self well to an audio format.
The book made me want to learn much more about Buddhism. It let me see Buddhism not as a set of beliefs that I must somehow adopt or not be a part of, but as a way of thinking that complemented my views and understanding of science.
The book helped me to view challenges in my life as opportunities for practice rather than as burdensome emotional taxation.
One of the best books I have ever listened to. I have over 300 "self help" books here at audible. This ranks among the very best.
The stories are absolutely boring. The narrator is worse. It closed all my system, let alone my heart!!
