Cleary gives a ringing tribute to some of the world's greatest women. He shows us a vast tradition of religion created by women, for women. It revolves around their values, their realities, and their inner continents. These traditions are passed down ear to ear in teaching lineages as long as China's history. Cleary displays the beauty and sanity of these women's spiritual paths, and shows why their wisdom has seemed invisible to grasping little emperors. --author of A Galaxy of Immortal Women: The Yin Side of Chinese Civilization
