Being Nobody, Going Nowhere: Meditations on the Buddhist Path Reviews
The subtitle of this wonder of a book is Meditations on the Buddhist Path, an amazingly apt description.
Beautifully presented! Using everyday language, Ayya Khema frames the Buddha's Noble 8-fold Path in a way that is essential for a beginner and deeply meaningful to someone like myself who has been diligently practicing for several years. Ms. Khema takes you to the nuts and bolts of the process and to the Heart of it in a way that increases confidence and inspires. Some of the things she mentions, I had experienced and wondered about. Some of my lingering questions were also answered. I shared this with several friends and all felt similarly. After this simmers for a bit, I would also recommend another title, "Who Is My Self?" Both of these are gems of the Dhamma.
I think this is about the best book I have ever read, along with the Power of Now by Echart Tolle. The writer was an American, living the usual American life before she found deep joy on the Buddhist path. I think this book cuts to the chase and gets to the heart of Buddhism. Just amazing!
This is a practical and thoughtful reflection on Buddhist Meditation. I read a lot of texts on meditation and contemplation. This is one of the most inviting, well written, practical, and clearly laid out offerings on understanding and entering the discipline of Buddhist Meditation. Ayya Khema has offered a lasting gift on this important topic.
Haven't finished it yet, but EVERYONE should read this book! The planet would be a much happier place!
This book is such a great introduction to the Buddha. After reading it through once and underlining all over the place I am now outlining the book in order to fully incorporate the practices taught.
