Practice and Insight on the Buddhist Path

by David Smith

“The rare and inspiring example of a life consistently and uncompromisingly dedicated to the practice of the Dharma.” – Urgyen Sangharakshita

A Record of Awakening is the remarkable fruit of more than twenty years’ immersion in Buddhist practice: a practice that has been both deep and far-reaching.

In this book, David Smith, “an ordinary working-class chap” who came across Buddhism, shares his extraordinary inner experience. Taking us through his journey — from initial practice in the Zen tradition and three years as a Theravadin monk to his recent years as a lay practitioner in East London —he describes the basic principles of his practice and the process whereby the “tap root of ignorance” is cut and the Awakened Mind is born.

His account reminds us that the Awakened Mind is within the reach of every one of us who is prepared to make the effort.

Believe nothing merely because you have been told it… Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings – that doctrine believe and cling to and take it as your guide.
The Buddha
