Publisher's Synopsis

In this lucid classic, beloved teacher Ayya Khema introduces the reader to the essence of the Buddhist path. She addresses the how and why of meditation, providing a clear framework for understanding the nature of karma and rebirth, and the entirety of the eightfold path.

With specific, practical advice Ayya Khema illuminates the practices of compassion and sympathetic joy, and offers forthright guidance in working with the hindrances that we all encounter in meditation. Few introductory books are both simple and profound.


Ayya Khema (1923-1997) authored twenty-five books in English and German on meditation and the Buddha's teachings; her books have been translated into seven other languages. During her extraordinary lifetime she established several Buddhist practice centers around the world, including Wat Buddha Dhamma in Australia, the International Buddhist Women's Centre and Parappuduwa Nun's Island in Sri Lanka, Buddha-Haus and Metta Vihara in Germany.
