《The key to the cessation of suffering》was published by the Publishing House of Religion & Culture (China) in June 2019. This book, a collection of dhamma talks by Luang Por Pramote Pamojjo, is the very first of its kind that is officially & publicly published in China. The 16 dhamma talks collected in this book, were dhamma talks given by Luang Por at various locations in the past few years.
Ordained as a monk in his late 40’s, Luang Por is keenly aware of the pace of life & way of thinking of the modern society; his teaching is direct yet very subtle, is clear and very comprehensive. The dhamma talks in this book lit up a path for practitioners in a concise yet humorous manner. Luang Por (in these dhamma talks) has mapped out critical stages along the path, including pitfalls & mitigation / self-help plans. Meanwhile, recognising the differences among various ways / lineages of practice, Luang Por summarises the essence of dhamma practice as the following: be aware of (the) matter and (the) mind as they truly are, with a stable and equanimous mind.
This book explains what “mindfulness” is about as well as how to develop it, what correct samathi is about as well as how to train the mind to attain it, what truth about the matter & mind is about as well as how to learn it. Further, the book suggests how best to blend dhamma practice into daily life, allowing the busy modern society an easy start and the ability to reap the real benefit from the dhamma practice.
Thanks to the vivid teachings of Luang Por; within just a few decades, more & more practitioners have made progress, some with life-changing breakthroughs. The objective of this book, is for those who are able to connect with the insights & inspiration of dhamma, to embark on the path to the cessation of suffering.
