:Monk in the Mountain provides direct access to the Spiritual Heart of genuine Samana (One who is walking the Path to the end of the world). The reader can access the Insight immediately and directly as Ajahn Sumano is someone just like you. The only difference is that he no longer believes that the pleasures of the world are all there is to this life. His process is everyone's process: the obligation to know who we are, to get one's priorities right, to sacrifice a little for the possibility of a lot. Ajahn Sumano took himself to where there was only he and his mind and challenged the mind to continue to deceive him, if it dared. The deception ended.

:Ajahn Sumano Bhikkhu is an American Buddhist monk. After seven years as a successful businessman (real estate, insurance, appraisal, and construction), he traveled around the world. Arriving in Thailand, he ordained as a monk. Five years later, he wandered throughout India. Returning to Thailand, he began to live in solitude in the northeast part of the country. Ajahn Sumano began writing and translating books eight years ago. Monk in the Mountain is his third major book. This book integrates 30 years of living alone in the forest and in caves throughout S.E. Asia. Many of the questions asked and answers offered were harvested from dialogues between the monk Sumano and spiritual seekers from all over the world. Some information comes from meditation courses and others from e-mails forwarded to him via his Web site. Ajahn Sumano does not meet with guests as he is continuing his solo intensive retreat until 2010. His intention in offering these books is to awaken the spirit of the readers so that they experience the happiness that comes with knowing-the-way-things-are. Once the seeker gets a taste of freedom from the self, Enlightenment is more than possible.
