An updated edition of the book A Life of Inner Quality is posted in the Books section. A Life of Inner Quality, translated from the Thai by Ṭhānissaro Bhikkhu, is a guide for integrating Buddhist practice into daily life, drawn from talks that Venerable Ācariya Mahā Boowa gave to groups of lay people from various walks of life. For this edition, fragments of a talk entitled “Nibbāna is Nibbāna” have been added to make this collection more complete.
