Apr 23, Rochelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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 ayua a clearly written book and an essential to the practitioner. Apr 10, Dana Larose rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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: Dec 23, Mariana rated it liked it. It took me a while to get used to her jargon and her use of Pali rather than Sanskrit.
