Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Be An Island is at once an introduction to the teachings of Buddhism and a rich continuation of Ayya Khema's personal vision of Buddhist practice. The best-selling author of Being Nobody, Going Nowhere once again guides us along the path of Buddhist meditation with direct and practical advice, giving us the contemplative tools to develop a healthy and fit sense of personal being. Basing her teachings firmly on the words of the Buddha, Ayya Khema introduces techniques for positive and negative emotions, for mindfulness practice, and for living well with others.

Born in Berlin in 1923 to Jewish parents, Ayya Khema was educated in Scotland and China and later emigrated to the United States. The author of twenty-five books, she was ordained as a nun in Sri Lanka in 1979 and established several Buddhist centers, including Wat Buddha Dhamma in Australia, Parapuddua Nun's Island in Sri Lanka, and Buddha Haus in Germany. In 1987 she coordinated the first-ever International Conference of Buddhist Nuns. She passed away in 1997.
