Ayya Khema (Ilse Kussel) was German born Theravada Buddhist nun, who, I’m pretty sure, never gladly suffered fools. Accounts from former students of her corroborate that impression. She is like a stern mother telling you the often-unpalatable truth without sugarcoating; she has your best interest in mind, that is clear.
Her style is clear and always directly to the point, and what she covers in this great book could well serve as a Buddhist Primer.
I have a fairly comprehensive Buddhist library which I read from daily, but the author I return to the most often is Ayya Khema. If ever I feel cloudy, her words cut through the fog and ushers me back to me feet and into action; this without beating you over the head with it, just by clearly and directly making her many well-wrought points.
She is a person who walked the walk and her experience and certainty shines through every sentence. You are richer for having met her, if only through her wonderful books.
You owe it to yourself to read this.
