Friday Freedom! Four Ways of Letting Go, Shared by Ajahn Brahm

“We should always be grateful for the faults in our partner because if they didn’t have those faults from the start, they would have been able to marry someone much better than us”

-Ajahn Brahm-

Have you considered Buddhism and Zen but found yourself at odds with the austere teachings? What if you had your own monk? Part Monk and part stand-up comedian. No need to feed him after sunset or even wash his robes, just turn him on from your iPhone or tablet.

If reading is more your style Ajahn Brahm also has an extensive collection of awesome books:

If that sounds enticing, I encourage you to spend some time with Ajahn Brahm and the merry monks of Western Australia. Ajahn Brahm is one of the many delightfully funny speakers of the Buddhist Society of Western Australia. Many of the talks contain light humor and insights on how we can live better, embracing the worldly challenges around us. The videos range from a few minutes to a couple of hours so you can always find something that fits the bill.

Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond: A Meditator’s Handbook

Make Ajahn Brahm and the BSWA part of your next spiritual study, you could emerge with warm acceptance toward life’s challenges and a maybe learn a couple new jokes.  Give it a try.

Stay Wise.
