Ajaan Maha Boowa's Dhamma Talks in English Translation, Translated and Narrated by Ajaan Suchart Apijato (from forestdhammabooks.com and www.kammatthana.com)
(Ebook) "From the beginning the Lord Buddha's example was the ideal of the Buddhist faithful. This can be seen from the way he practiced. He always spent his time living in the forest. When he renounced the home life, he went forth to lead the life of a forest dweller. No longer concerned about his princely status, he courageously and unflinchingly withstood the ordeal of his exertion in the practice of Dhamma. The modes of practice that he carried out always countered the flow of the mundane world. Following in his footsteps, the Lord Buddha's Arahant disciples also realized magga, phala and Nibbana while meditating in forest and mountain environments. Their renunciation and going forth into homelessness went against the grain of worldly life, and wholly in the direction of the transcendent Dhamma. Striving for enlightenment with unwavering diligence, they soon attained unsurpassed purity of heart. The Dhamma taught by the Buddha and his countless Arahant disciples, right down to the present day, is delivered in forest discourses that lead the listener away from the dangers of the world and toward transcendence and purity."
