A renowned Buddhist master digs into the idea of interdependency—the very core of the Buddha’s teachings. Under the Bodhi Tree takes us back to the principles at the heart of Buddha’s teachings—conditionality and dependent co-arising. Ajahn Buddhadasa Bhikkhu makes the case for dependent co-arising as a natural law, and builds a compelling presentation from there of Buddhist philosophy, meditation, and practice. Basing himself squarely on the Buddha’s own words as preserved in the Pali Canon, he brings clarity and simplicity to what is typically a thorny philosophical knot. By returning dependent co-arising to its central place in Buddhist theory and practice, Ajahn Buddhadasa provides perspective on the Buddha’s own insights and awakening. Under the Bodhi Tree is another excellent entry from one of the most renowned Buddhist thinkers of modern times. For students who wish to study further, a companion guide is available from liberationpark.org.

Who was the Buddha? Once upon a time in ancient India, a prince was born. His name was Siddhartha, and one day he would inherit a powerful kingdom.

Gleaned from more than thirty years of sailing and working as a sailing chief engineer, author A.K. Girisam shares the stories of his life and on the seas—the joy, the fun, parties, and laughter as well as the tensions, anxiety, and worries. In Merry Mariner, Girisam narrates a host of real-life adventures, near-miss incidents, and heart-stopping experiences. He tells about the time a ship was cruising in the Suez Canal and the steering failed, when the engine room flooded with sea water on a ship loaded with 250,000 tons of iron ore, and when a fully loaded ship ran aground and jagged rocks ripped open the ship’s plate. In addition, Girisam relates memorable, and hilarious events from his college days, his fun filled days as a junior engineer on his first ship, and many rib ticking stories (The Reluctant Cupid, My daughter’s musical adventures etc) about his family and friends. Merry Mariner also offers a collection of his thoughts and opinions on a variety of topics in a lighter vein (Hammer Master’s club, Amnesia, boon or bane? Etc)
