MANAGING THE UPs AND DOWNs OF LIFE

We can cope with the Ups in life wonderfully but when things start to
go wrong... we tend to find it all too difficult to accept, may that be
when our relationships are going wrong, our career or status in society
is threatened, our body succumbing to illnesses or losing someone to
death. Ajahn Brahm will offer insights to life and how to best cope
with these ups and downs.

ABOUT AJAHN BRAHM


Born in London, Ajahn Brahm completed his degree in Theoretical Physics
at Cambridge University. After teaching for a year, he travelled to
Thailand and ordained as a monk at the age of twenty-three.

Thereafter, Ajahn Brahm began his training in the Thai forest
tradition under Ajahn Chah. He is presently the Abbot of
Bodhinyana Monastery and the Spiritual Director of the Buddhist
Society of Western Australia.

Ajahn Brahm has gathered many stories through his encounters with
the lay people and his experience in building a monastery from scratch.
These heartwarming stories reveal the qualities of humility and diligence
and expose moments of insight, wisdom and compassion in the lives of
ordinary people.

His book "Opening the Door of Your Heart" which has captured the
hearts of many, encapsulates modern tales of hope and love,
forgiveness, freedom from fear and overcoming pain, and shows how
the timeless wisdom of the Buddha's teachings remain so relevant
in our ever-changing world.
