This sparkling collection of Dharma teachings by Tenzin Palmo addresses issues of common concern to Buddhist practitioners from all traditions. Personable, witty, and insightful, Tenzin Palmo presents an inspiring and no-nonsense view of Buddhist practice, giving readers the inestimable benefit of her many years of reflection and practice in teaching and in retreat. The topics covered include women in Buddhism, karma, rebirth, the role of the spiritual master, spiritual practice in daily life, ethics, motivation, visualization, calm abiding meditation and insight meditation, and the emerging role of lay practitioners in a tradition that historically has belonged to monastics.

"Tenzin Palmo is one of the most genuine and accomplished of western practitioners. Her voice is simple and pure, wise and true." - Jack Kornfield, author of Path with a Heart.
