Sons of the Buddha, by Kamala Tiyavanich

Sons of the Buddha

Sons of the Buddha chronicles the lives of three of Thailand’s most prominent Twentieth-centry Buddhist monks, Ajahn Buddhadasa (1906-93), Ajahn Panya (b. 1911), and Ajahn Jumnien (b. 1936). Each would effect changes in moral attitudes and Dharma practices, restore Buddhism’s social dimension, bridge the divide separating laypeople and monastics, and champion an openmindedness toward other religions. In these delightful stories, full of local color, we see what it was that led these monastics to become so fearless and influential.

Vedanta stresses that all paths lead to the same ultimate goal, and these monks demonstrate it through experiences and spiritual practices that are Buddhist in character but also very much Vedantic.
