From heart to heart
Author: Achaan Thanavaro
Achaan Thanavaro's last speeches, before his return to the lay condition, invite us to seek the happiness of the wisdom that sees things 'as they are', beyond mental constructions. Through awareness and attention we rediscover the functional value of the senses, desire as a push to spiritual growth, the sincerity that must move our every action, and the respect for ourselves and for others which is the essential basis of any true research. .
