Phra Farang PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Phra Farang free pdf Peter Robinson had tried to find meaning in his businesses, his material possessions and his relationships but nothing made him feel complete. At the relatively late age of forty, Peter went on a package holiday to Thailand and there, unexpectedly, became fascinated by the feeling of tranquil purpose he found in even the most humble working monasteries. On his return to England he became determined to find out more, and this journey of discovery led to him to his ordination as a Buddhist monk five years later. At his ordination he was given the chaya or religious name of Phra Peter Pannapadipo - light, or lamp, of wisdom. But it was after the ceremony took place that the real metamorphosis occurred. With gentle humour and compassion Phra Peter Paddapadipo writes of his transition from agnostic Westerner to Buddhist monk and the rewards and pitfalls for the Westerner who chooses to follow this path.
