Many years ago, I had the privilege and joy to meet David Hurst. He became a friend, mentor and inspiration to me. David left many gifts to the world, one being his first book copy, which he tasked me to make available on the internet for free. It is below in exerpt, and at the bottom of this page in entirety for free reading. It is as relevant today as it was when David lived and wrote those wise words. There is also another compilation of books and presentations, and meditation CD's available to purchase below or at the Madasi Love online store. Enjoy.
David Hurst - an introduction
An exerpt from the book "Hurst - All in The Mind":
David Hurst was a Buddhist Meditation master born in Sydney, Australia in 1929, of an English father and a Chinese/Eurasian mother. He received his higher ordination as a Theravadan Buddhist monk at a Thai monastery established in the Sussex countryside for the British Buddhist Society. At that time, he was formally known as the Venerable Jayamangalo (Tan Jai to his friends).
After leaving the monastery, David taught in England for a time before returning to Australia and teaching in South Australia, Victoria and finally, Queensland. David helped many people with diverse problems and illnesses.He “unzipped the Earth suit” (his words) on 9th August 1995 - when he felt his work was completed.
“No sad songs for me”.
HAPPY TRAVELLING DAVID

It combines two books and transcripts of talks. The two books are "All In The Mind" (available below, free to read on this web site) and "Aspects of Being". The transcripts are from a series of three talks titled "You Create your Own Reality", given by David at the Theosophical Society in Adelaide in 1986.
