Customer Review

on 20 November 2005
I found reading this book such a positive experience that, although you could easily read it straight through, I found myself saving the next chapter until tomorrow as a gift to my future self!
Dipa Ma was an extraordinary example among Buddhist teachers - a realised woman master and at the same time an 'ordinary' housewife and single mother. She was both supremely gentle and loving and fiercely uncompromising in her pursuit of liberation. Her students included Western seekers who went on to become famous teachers in their own right, such as Jack Kornfield and Sharon Salzberg.
This book gives you a real sense of who she was through the eyes and hearts of those who knew her. It demystifies meditation and enlightenment and makes them seem within the reach of anyone, even you! Buy this book if you are having trouble sitting every day, if you know a female practitioner who could use a good role model, or you just fancy a joyous read.
