Read Your Heart, Not The Book | Ajahn Brahmavamso

July 30, 2020

One question often asked by those new to Buddhism is “What holy books do you follow?”. Ajahn Brahm responds by telling them that just as the Muslims follow the Koran and the Christians follow the Bible, Buddhists follow meditation. That means that the ultimate reference and authority within Buddhism, the real truth, is direct experience derived from a peaceful mind developed through meditation. This is the ultimate source of wisdom and truth.
