Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree, written by Ajan Buddhadasa Thero is translated to Sinhala. This is a collection of three sermons made by Venerable Ajaan Buddhadasa to the Dhamma study group at Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok in 1961. In these orations the Venerable Ajaan proposes that the 'heart-wood' or the pith or essence of the Buddhist Teachings is the practice of non-clinging, the dwelling with a mind empty of the feeling of 'I' and 'mine'. He masterfully shows how this practice may be developed and how taking emptiness as the fundamental principle one has a wonderful tool to understand and make use of every one of the many concepts and skillful means that lie within the Buddhist tradition, and also how to distinguish those things that are alien to it. Drawing fluently from material in both the Pall canon and the teaching of the Chinese Zen Masters he makes terms and concepts that often seem dauntingly abstract, immediate and practical.
