thought provoking even to someone like me who can never understand complex maths, but can follow logic. logic of getting lost in the wonder of things, of the intricacies of relationships between objects of affection or disaffection and of the difficult to grasp human psychology and of public and individual assumptions that dictate and dominate all the various stories that touched this life. I will listen once again, but I now feel this is one of those books it is better to read than listen.

after James Grey's A million little pieces, one can never be sure if Truth is told. but if it has been told here...it's so scary because , we all have been there in some of these places. the distance between reality and madness or alternate reality is scarily thin. I couldn't stop listening and understanding, remembering my grandmother who had been through several traumas during partition and eventually slipped into a different world. she came out sometimes, but she liked being in this other world we couldn't see. And hearing this I felt I got some answers.

it's good insights

frankly he is a wise and learned Monk. great perspective. and I listened with respect. I feel the audio performance was rather high pitched, which is genuinely his own style, but I would say it can be improved to be more calm and soothing.

Even better than reading it!

I had deeply enjoyed and been moved by the book. priceless for the insights on life, of one's sincerely reflected upon and observed Past, present and future. But hearing it is something else. I have heard a few chapters twice over. A beautiful voice and perfectly paced, with just the right inflections and so very personal. I think this is a book I will come back to hear again and again. Go for it!

very fascinating

this was so normal, warm, brave, and intimate to hear. Tahira is not only so honest about a very personal and deadly serious subject that is so common to all now, she is also charming and witty and compelling.

not easy to stay interested in....

this is real. it could be your or my story. every word is worth hearing. I learnt...something. it's scary to process as it must have been to share. all I can say is thank you. don't know the reason why we suffer. because sometimes it makes no sense. but life brings you there and to deal with it openly and so vulnerably is commendable.
