Mindfulness of Death

This book entitled "Mindfulness of Death" has been published for people who have set their mind on practicing the Dhamma. The practice will provide the greatest benefits when practitioners cultivate their mind using mindfulness of death. These people are regarded as heedful in the way they lead their life. For instance, if they wish to make merit they will not delay in making merit. If they wish to meditate, they will not delay putting effort to meditate for peace within themselves. Hence, these people will not die without making merit for themselves. Frequently thinking about mortality is in accordance with the Lord Buddha's teaching. For those who have developed mindfulness of death, upon applying their mind to meditation, their mind will calm down quickly because of frequent reflection on mortality. Such persons will be able to make a lot of merit, in line with their personal ability. They will then obtain good results and benefits from having been born a human being.

A Practising Guide to Peace

Many Buddhists have travelled over the years from near and far to come and see me and discuss how to practise meditation to find peace. They all asked whether I had a book to guide them in their practice, and if so, could they have one. When I said there was none, they asked if I would like to write one to give to those interested, for it would be very useful. When it became clear that there was a demand for such a book, I decided to write one according to my wisdom and ablility. This is the result. It is a forest monk's explanation of meditation practice to fulfil the good intentions of Buddhists, who have been waiting a long time for it.

Every Action Receives its Result

This book will explain and elaborate the meaning of the Buddha's proverb "Action will differentiate all beings, the evil from the good". Contemplating on why all of us, although being born human alike, yet some live with happiness and wellbeing, but some live with suffering and hardship, both physical and mental. What are the reasons behind the differences? Why do all kinds of misery befall on some people? Why do some suffer from sickness all the time? Why are we born differently in status and complexion? Why do our physical appearances come in various size and colour? Why were some people born with silver spoons? Why were some born wealthy, born as Brahmins, or born as kings, living in grand houses and lavishing palaces full of joy whether sitting or sleeping? The cause of all the differences is indeed their past actions.

Sati-Sampajanna(Mindfulness & Self-Awareness)

This book was originated from a consideration of the life circumstances of people that everyone generally prefers to have safety and a happy life. In whatever we do, we want to achieve our aims. When we engage in any kind of conversation, we want it to be worthwhile. When we envisage in any kind of thoughts, we want to turn it into the right direction, one in which the cause and effect will generate benefits for ourselves and others. In addition, the result will engender happiness, advancement, and peace for us all and for others in the world. Then, I return to the teachings o the Lord Buddha: "For any individual, man or woman, if one has a wish to find success and peace; one should practise the mind to acquire the complete Mindfulness and Self-awareness (Sati-Sampajanna)".
