Mindfulness Precepts & Crashing in the Same Car by Ajahn Jayasaro

Posted on | October 31, 2013 | 1 Comment

Mindfulness Precepts & Crashing in the Same Car - Ajahn JayasaroMindfulness Precepts & Crashing in the Same Car by Ajahn Jayasaro was published in 2008. The title is taken from the David Bowie song “Always crashing in the same car” from the album Low from 1977. The title refers to certain phases of Buddhist meditations as practised in the thai Theravada tradition where the meditator seems to repeat the same unvoluntarely mistakes again and again. This books offers practical solutions and much more:

This is the weird thing – intention, thought, and feeling arise first, and the one who is thinking and feeling arises subsequent to the thought. From a philosophical point of view this could be debatable, but this is something we can observe very clearly. Common sense says that first there is someone who is thinking, and then you have a thought. Is that what really happens? Look directly at what is going on. Some of our most cherished assumptions are overturned quite radically when we’re willing to do that, to really look and see what’s going on here. It’s liberating.
