Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree : The Buddha’s Teachings on Voidness
It is a beautiful read. Nothing is more practical than voidness, than sunnata. But we must practice. Buddhadasa Bhikkhu makes voidness clear and then points out how we keep missing it, as it arises over and over in our ordinary lives. Voidness is the theory, the practice, and the fruit of practice; if one practices, it must be for the fruit of sunnata, and if one receives any fruit, it must be this sunnata, so that finally one attains the thing that is supremely desirable.

There is nothing beyond voidness. When it is realized, all problems end. Nov 08, Phillip Moffitt rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ajahn Buddhadasa was one of the most influential teachers in Thailand in the last century. This book explores what is buddhavasa by sunyata emptiness or voidness. The teachings of emptiness are challenging and Ajahn Buddhadasa gives a clear description of his understanding of it and how you can experience it for yourself.

Jul 24, Had Walmer rated it really liked it. Am pleased to find some words on emptiness, in my Theravada Tradition. Sep 10, AyeMyat Thinn rated it it was amazing. I started reading this book because my Thai friends recommended me as the highest level of Dhamma teaching. I have never read a book that bhikjhu nibban nirvana in such intricate and phenomenal details.
For some, the teachings can be philosophical knowledge but for those who practice Dhamma, the teachings can turn into insight.
Either way, the book describes the teachings in the core buddhacasa Buddhism. Mar 08, Dave Bergen rated it it was amazing. One of the most important books on the Buddha’s teaching ever written. I could go on, but I would be keeping from reading it. If you want to really understand the Buddha and his teaching, read it now.
Feb 05, Heather Bennett rated it it was amazing. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn Buddhism. It is a concise hheartwood of sunnata. Ajahn Buddhadasa explains how to master this in our daily life. You can be a beginner or a master at Buddhism to understand this wonderful teaching. He gives a common sense approach to understanding sunnata and applying it to bodyi life. Jan 29, Forest Tong rated it liked it. I did not enjoy this book for several reasons. First, it felt too one-sided and dogmatic; second, the analogies, which are for me frequently the most illuminating part hearhwood dharma books, were weak; and third, the pacing was very strange, with some simple things stretched out to great lengths and complex buddhadaxa skimmed over.
I suppose it does deliver its point, but I left it feeling a disconnect. Jun 19, Tom rated it really liked it. Happiness, ours and others, can be only as nothing is held as me or mine, we or ours.
