What is our relationship to reality? This profound and very sensible question gets the conversation rolling along another very powerful spiritual path in Buddhist monk Sayadaw U Tejaniya’s book. When Awareness Becomes Natural is an excellent introduction to his spiritual teachings, mainly, the awareness of attachment and aversion all humans wrestle with in everyday life.

Sayadaw brings his own special wisdom, as an everyday man who, at the age of 40, joined the Shwe Oo Min Dhamma Sukha Forest Monastery in Myanmar 20 years ago. His writings are simple, clear, and concise. An outgrowth of his personal journey and an extension of his now-global presence leading retreats, teaching live meditation, lecturing, and presenting material through videos, audio meditation, and social media. Readers on every level will find a way to connect with Sayadaw’s teachings.
