Whether mere bumps in the road or genuine crises, we live in a world of unwanted events that no willpower can prevent. In The Art of Disappearing, Ajahn Brahm helps us learn to abandon the headwind of false expectations and follow instead the Buddha's path of understanding. Releasing our attachment to past and future, to self and other, we can directly experience the natural state of serenity underlying all our thoughts and discover the bliss of the present moment. In that space, we learn what it is to disappear. Ajahn Brahm, an unparalleled guide to the bliss of meditation, makes the journey as fun as it is rewarding. The Art of Disappearing, comprised of a series of teachings Ajahn Brahm gave to the monks of Bodhinyana Monastery, where he serves as abbot, offers a unique glimpse into the mind of one of contemporary Buddhism's most engaging figures.

About the Author

Ajahn Brahmavamso Mahathera (known to most as Ajahn Brahm), born Peter Betts in London in 1951, is a Theravada Buddhist monk. Ajahn Brahm grew up in London and earned a degree in Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University. Disillusioned with the world of academe, he trained as a monk in the jungles of Thailand under Ajahn Chah. A monk for over thirty years, Ajahn Brahm is a revered spiritual guide and the abbot of Bodhinyana Monastery, in Serpentine, Western Australia-one of the largest monasteries in the southern hemisphere. He is also the Spiritual Director of the Buddhist Society of Western Australia, and spiritual adviser and inspiration for Buddhist centers throughout Asia and Australia. His winning combination of wit and wisdom makes his books bestsellers in many languages, and on his teaching tours Brahm regularly draws multinational audiences of thousands.

Reviews

"This book is an invaluable companion for your journey to your true self, the not-self that lies at the end of the Buddha's path."--BuddhaSpace "With his characteristic simplicity, clarity, and humor, the British-born Thai forest monk, Ajahn Brahm, offers a prescription for treating dissatisfaction with our lives, whether it be difficulties with our health or any circumstance not to our liking. His instructions on meditation and on mindfulness practice are simple and clear enough for new practitioners, while at the same time offering profound insights for those with years of experience. Brahm teaches us the "art of disappearing" into stillness, which gives rise to contentment with life as it is at this very moment. This is Ajahn Brahm's prescription for true peace and profound happiness. What a gift of the Dhamma!"--Toni Bernhard, author of How to Be Sick: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and their Caregivers "In this well-done and illuminating work, Brahm shines a light on the spiritual practice of mindfulness."--Spirituality & Practice "With his characteristic simplicity, clarity, and humor, the British-born Thai forest monk, Ajahn Brahm, offers a prescription for treating dissatisfaction with our lives, whether it be difficulties with our health or any circumstance not to our liking.
