Renowned as a living female arahant, Thai Buddhist nun Mae Chee Kaew (1901-1991) was accomplished in meditation and visions from youth on. This is a lovely biography and presentation of her teachings, especially once she was able to take up full-time spiritual practice after the dissolution of her marriage. Like the monks, a nun, or mae chee, has a shaved head and wears white robes and lives a strict monastic discipline. This inspiring volume effortlessly explains Buddhism itself in the passing, as well as the experience of meditation.
