The sound of silence is like a subtlety behind everything that you awaken to; you don't notice it if you're seeking the extremes. Yet as we start to become more poised, more present, fully receptive of all this moment has to offer, we start to experience it vividly and listening to it can draw us ever--deeper into the mysteries of now.

Always skillful and good humored, Ajahn Sumedho's teachings defy boundaries. Anyone--from laypeople looking to deepen their grasp of the Buddha's message, to lifetime Buddhist monastics--will appreciate the author's sparkling insights into to such key Buddhist themes as awareness, consciousness, identity, relief from suffering, and mindfulness of the body. The Sound of Silence represents the best of Ajahn Sumedho's masterful work to help us all see each life with a new and sustaining clarity.

About the author (2007)

Ajahn Sumedho has been a monk for over forty years, and Abbott for over 30 years. He setup the first Theravadin monastic community in the west, and started a nuns order called the siladharas. He has probably ordained well over 100 people. He continues to speak and teach around the world, and is regularly published in Buddhist magazines such as Buddhadharma, Tricycle, and Inquiring Mind. Ajahn Sumedho gave the keynote speech to the United Nation in Thailand for the 2006 Vesak celebration called Buddhist Contribution to World Peace and Sustainable Development. He resides as Abbot in Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in England.

Born in England in 1956, Ven. Amaro Bhikkhu received his BSc. in Psychology and Physiology from the University of London. Spiritual searching led him to Thailand, where he went to Wat Pah Nanachat, a Forest Tradition monastery established for Western disciples of Thai meditation master Ajahn Chah, who ordained him as a bhikkhu in 1979. He returned to England and joined Ajahn Sumedho at the newly established Chithurst Monastery. He resided for many years at the Amaravati Buddhist Centre north of London, making trips to California every year during the 1990s. Since June of 1996 he has lived at Abhayagiri Monastery in Redwood Valley, California.
