Overview

In this eminently accessible study of one of the Buddha’s most important teachings, Ayya Khema, a Buddhist nun and expert, guides the reader toward a higher understanding and realization of the true nature of the self. Interpreting the Potthapada Sutta, one of the fundamental texts on meditation, with insightful examples from her vast experience, Khema explains perhaps the most effective Buddhist meditative practice for personal transformation. Throughout the book, readers learn about the language, the customs, and the culture of the time period in which the Buddha gave his famous discourse, and will be surprised at the applicability of the message, both on a personal and social level.
