Recommended Reading & Audio

Actual experience always beats thinking or reading about experience, yet the right resources can help point us in the right direction. Here are my recommended resources for you.

I've curated them to specifically help point you in the direction of Truth. All the teachings are given by my own teachers: whom I've encountered personally, who have the highest degrees of experience and integrity, and who make learning simple and clear. 

Insight, by Jess Peter Koffman
$25CAD plus taxes & shipping

This epic book is a handbook for life! Is god real? What is karma? How does it work? Is there life after death? Are there different realms? Where is the mind? How to achieve true happiness? What is true love? How should we meditate? Do souls exist? What should we do before we die? What is enlightenment? How can we get there?

For the first time, answers to these questions and many more are available in one practical guide. Insight provides much-needed answers to questions that have been asked since the dawn of time. A practical guide and must-read for all humankind.

Online Reading: Mindfulness & Insight

Mindfulness and Wisdom or Insight are best practiced instead of thought about conceptually or intellectually. The concepts won't make sense without direct experience. Sometimes, writings can help us understand along the way, what our experience has been about, or can help us when we're stuck, even just to realise that we're stuck in our practice.

These four books are collections of dhamma talks and instruction given by Luang Por Pramote Pamojjo, one of the most foremost pre-eminent of the Thai Buddist masters still alive today. His teachings get right to the heart of the practice, without fussing over terminology and techniques. Please consider taking a course with a teacher (I can help or put you in touch with someone) and use these books as companions to your study, practice and development.

All translated, compiled and edited by Jess Peter Koffman from original Thai Dhamma talks given by Luang Por Pramote Pamojjo.

Streaming Audio: Mindfulness & Insight

Talks given by Luang Por Pramote Pamojjo on correct practice of mindfulness leading to Truth and real lasting happiness and peace. Translated and compiled by Jess Peter Koffman. These are best listened to from the top down, if you are just curious or just starting out with your practice.

If you've learned Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction  (MSBR) or Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MCT) in the past, I recommend keeping an open mind (an empty teacup, so to speak) as certain things may need unlearning. I also highly recommend the True Mindfulness Course with either myself or someone who has learned directly from an enlightened master in the Thai Forest Buddhist Tradition. If you cannot make it to one of my courses either live or via Skype, I can put you in touch with other qualified teachers.
