Ajahn Chah (1919-1992) was a beloved Thai Buddhist master whose teachings were refreshingly uncompromising in their clarity and certainty-the certainty of a meditator who has achieved deep understanding of the Buddha's teachings. He was an important influence and spiritual mentor for a generation of American Buddhist teachers.
"Employing simple, precise language, his words convey his belief
that liberation is possible for each of us through diligent effort
and sincere intention."-Tricycle
"Chah's style of teaching Buddhism was informal and non-systematic; he was renowned for giving instructions in a way that an 'uneducated rice farmer' could understand. The talks in Being Dharma reflect Ajahn Chah's fundamental orientation toward Buddhism as a way of life, rather than a set of rules or rituals."- Shambhala Sun
