Happy and grumpy, 108 tips from a Buddhist monk to enjoy life by Ajahn Brahm

- through Fabrice Groult

Published on

The secrets of happiness by one of the most important contemporary Buddhist masters.

Here are short, funny and inspiring stories to enjoy life... without worrying! In each of them, Ajahn Brahm deals with "the things of life" and notions that are at the heart of Buddhism such as attention, suffering, forgiveness, compassion or happiness. But behind his light and playful tone (you will learn how to deal with "Mister know-it-all", to help "The politician at the bottom of the well", or even to guide "The lost taxi driver"), this are the paths of meditation open to the most neophyte of readers. Rich in his dual English and Australian culture, his experience as a monk in the Forest tradition of Theravada Buddhism, and the stories shared with his students, the spiritual master offers accessible lessons of wisdom that will appeal to adults and children alike.
