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.
Would you consider the audio edition of Opening the Door of Your Heart to be better than the print version?
This is a good book for getting a better life. It telles a lot of small histories of conflicts and how to get them out of the way. I listen to to the book every evening before I go to sleep. Lots of situations that has made me angry is now gone.

Getting a better life.
Believing that a good, interesting life is marked by quality, not quantity, John Steinbeck took note of his itchy feet and prepared to travel. He was accompanied by his French poodle Charley, diplomat and watchdog, across the states of America from Maine to California. Moving through woods and forests, dirt tracks and highways to large cities and wildernesses, Steinbeck observed America and the Americans with a humorous and sometimes sceptical eye.
Where does Travels With Charley rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I read Travels With Charley first when I where about 18 years old. I never forgot how good I liked this book with it's many stories from the locals in USA.
Now I'm 61 years and the bok is just as good as the first time. This book I will recommend for all readers.
