Foreword
~'I
~;
ThiS
small book began life as a
Dhamma
talk given
in
theThai language. After I had edited the transcribed version it wasprinted
in
Thailand under the title
Lak Rak.
One of the readersof that book, Varangkana Lamsam, found it useful and decidedthat she would like to arrange the printing
of an
English version
as
a gift
of
Dhamma
to fellow lay Buddhists. Her cousin PimkaeoSundaravej, who had received the book from her, translated
it.
For my part I have edited the manuscript and clarified somepoints of
Dhamma
that I feel were a little vague
in
my ownoriginal discourse. I would like to express my appreciation ofthe efforts of both Varangkana and Pimkaeo to make this bookpossible.May the virtues
of
the Triple Gem guide and protect allwho read this book.

Translator's Acknowledgments 
This
project began
aSa
personal one for
me.
Last year, mydear cousin Varangkana Lamsam gave
me
a copy of AjahnJayasaro's book
Lak Rak,
the Thai version of this book. 1 haveadmired many of Ajahn Jayasaro's books before, but this onemade
me
feel
as
if it had been written especially to guide
me
atthat point
in
my life. I was so touched that I resolved
to
trans-late it to English one day to share privately with
my
two sons,who might not grow up to have a deep enough understandingof the Thai language to appreciate this treasure fully. Uponhearing this plan,
my
cousin expressed the desire to publish aformal translation
as
there are many others who would benefitfrom
an
English version. With the assistance of our friend UmaDebhakam, we were able to seek Ajahn Jayasaro's permissionand what started out as a vague idea quickly became a reality.There are many without whom this translation wouldnot have been possible, and I wish to thank them here:
my
cousin Varangkana for giving me the book that changed
my
life, for believing
in
me, and for making it all happen;
my
sisterTipsuda Thavaramara for reviewing the most difficult parts andcoming up with the title; my husband Daniel Magaud for
hi~
patient reading and thoughtful comments; my friend Uma
/
Debhakam for her beautiful,
coverci:tes~gn.
And most of all, I
am
grateful to Ajahn Jayasaro for trusting me
to
translate his work,for his editing and clarification, and for giving
me
the opportu-nity
to
contribute to the sharing of his wisdom not only with
my
own children but,
in
the true Buddhist spirit of
metta,
with
any-
one who can read the English language.I would like to dedicate this work to
my
parents, the firsttwo people who taught
me
about love, and to
my
sons Jak andPaul, who are without a doubt the greatest loves of my life.
