22. Frugal with his words

A large group of Dhamma practitioners from Buriram province—headed by Police Lieutenant Bunchai Sukhontamat, the provincial prosecutor—came to pay their respects to Luang Pu, to listen to the Dhamma, and to ask questions about how to progress further in their practice. Most of them had practiced with all the famous ajaans, who had explained the practice in a variety of ways that weren’t always in line with one another, and this had caused them more and more doubts. So they asked Luang Pu’s advice as to the way of practice that was correct and easiest, as they had difficulties in finding time to practice. If they could learn of a way that was really easy, it would be especially right for them.

Luang Pu answered,

“Watch the mind right at the mind.”
