    Story
    (202)

    During his wanderings and work over the last 30 years as a Buddhist monk, Ajahn Brahm has gathered many poignant, funny and profound stories. While traditional Buddhist philosophy is at the heart of this collection, these thoughtful stories are written like playful parables, which are used to launch into a deeper exploration of subjects such as mindfulness, suffering, forgiveness, hope, wisdom, and unconditional love.

    What did you love best about Opening the Door of Your Heart?

    Opening the Door of Your Heart is a collection of Ajahn Brahms most memorable and interesting stories that tell important Buddhist lessons in a fun, interesting and relevant way. Brahm makes Buddhism accessible for everyone, especially for lay novices like myself.

    I've been a listener of Ajahn Brahm's podcast for awhile now and I love his voice and style. I was a little leery to listen to a book that wasn't narrated by Brahm himself as he is so wonderful at telling his own story. It took me a few stories before I warmed to the narrator, but after awhile he grew on me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Opening the Door of Your Heart?

    The whole thing is memorable! It's one of those books you'll read again and again.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last sentence will put a big grin on your face.
