A Short Biography of Phra Ajahn Yantra Amaro is actually very short, only 80 pages. The first part is what the title says -- a biography of the Thai Buddhist monk. First is a sketch of his life before Yogihood, and following is a yearly look at his life arranged around the next twenty rains retreats -- when, during the monsoon season, the monk retires to his monastery to meditate. The second part of the book contains short selections from Phra Ajahn Yantra Amaro's writings. Alas, besides the novel arrangement and some of his more unusual devotions (such as contemplating and dissecting decaying human corpses), the book offers no real surprises for anyone with even a basic understanding of Buddhism. I suppose much of that is because one can only do so much with an eighty-page booklet, but also it seems Phra Ajahn Yantra Amaro is about the standard for Buddhist monks. ( )
