What the Buddha Never Taught : A 'behind the Robes" Account of Life in a Thai Forest Monastery Paperback
by Tim Ward
There is still a place in the jungles of Thailand, where you can leave it all behind...A cult classic and bestseller in the 1990s, What the Buddha Never Taught is a humorous "behind the robes" account of life inside one of the strictest jungle monasteries in Southeast Asia.
In Pahnanachat, the monks keep the 227 rules laid down by the Buddha, including refraining from all killing.
But how does a foreign monk cope with cobra in the outhouse, or the temptation of a Mars Bar in his begging bowl?
Find out, in this newly reincarnated 20th anniversary edition, with a new introduction by the author and a new foreword by Wade Davis.
