Reviews

"...the rich details that [Brown] provides in terms of Maechi Wabi's experiences is truly commendable." - H-Net Reviews (H-Buddhism) "An absorbing and unique story. At the heart of it is Wabi's personal spiritual journey, especially as a Buddhist meditation practitioner. The reader also learns a considerable amount about women in Thai Buddhism." -- Donald K. Swearer, author of The Buddhist World of Southeast Asia "This book will give readers some good insights into the actual practice of Buddhism today and the difficulties that some women have encountered in trying to live it." - George D. Bond, author of The Buddhist Revival in Sri Lanka: Religious Tradition, Reinterpretation, and Response
