OPENING THE DOOR OF YOUR HEART And Other Buddhist Tales of Happiness

by | Read by Francis Greenslade

Spirituality • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

London-born Ajahn Brahm, who studied under Ajahn Chah in the Thai forest tradition, is now abbot of Bodhinyana Monastery in Western Australia. OPENING THE DOOR TO YOUR HEART is a collection of his often-humorous stories illustrating the intersection of Buddhist thought with everyday life. Whether he’s discussing turning stage fright into fun or surviving rotten fish curry dinners, Brahm's stories impart the fundamental lessons he learned on his quest for enlightenment. Narrator Francis Greenslade captures Brahm's easygoing nature and mischievous sense of humor. He narrates with a rough Australian accent that conveys practicality over sensitivity. While the production reflects Brahm’s accessibility to Westerners, his fondness for metaphors involving feces may not resonate with all listeners.
