New UK edition. The extraordinary life story and spiritual teachings of one of the rare female Buddhist masters and one who attained profound levels of insight in an astonishingly short time.

Dipa Ma Barua was a major figure in contemporary Buddhism. One of the few women in her generation to devote herself entirely to the pursuit of meditation, she was the first truly accomplished female meditation master in the Theravada tradition to teach in the USA and, while she had a deep devotion to the tradition, she also had a fierce understanding that the spiritual accomplishments of women could be equal in every way. Her influence on the teaching of insight meditation practice in the West is presented here through stories and encounters told by sources such as family members, her students in Calcutta, and several of America's leading Buddhist and meditation teachers - such as Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, and Sharon Salzberg. Dipa Ma chose home, work, and family over ascetic seclusion in a temple or monastery, and taught meditation and mindfulness amidst everyday busyness in her simple apartment in the heart of Calcutta.

"Dipa Ma was the most loving person I ever met." Sharon Salzberg.

"An inspiring and beautiful book about one of our most beloved elders, a modern Buddhist saint." Jack Kornfield.

"This book, like Dipa Ma, is simple, straightforward and powerful." Alice Walker.

"Reading these reflections of Dipa Ma rouses the faith that being in her presence always did; a mind at peace and a heart of complete lovingness IS a possibility." Sylvia Boorstein.
