Having read a lot of Buddhist authors, she has found her way into one of my favorites. Apr 23, Rochelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: spirituality , buddhism.

Great book, probably only book one needs on the nuts and bolts of a spiritual practice. It will get you to square one, point in the right direction, though as some have said and I agree she is somewhat rigid in her thinking, probably a product of her discipline and the method of practice she inherited from her teacher.

It is a clearly written book and an essential to the practitioner. Apr 10, Dana Larose rated it it was amazing Shelves: , buddhism , owned , nonfiction.

I've enjoyed all of Ayya Khema's books so far, and at the moment this one might be my favourite. I feel like it's the simplest and most relevant for Buddhist noobs. Each chapter is quite short, so it would be easy to read one before a meditation session or in the morning to set the tone for your day. Ayya's tone and writing is plain and direct. I get the impression she must have been like a stern, no-nonsense but caring grandmother :.
