Description About the author
Dipa Ma presents both the life story and teachings of Dipa Ma Barua, a major figure in contemporary Eastern spirituality. A rare female Buddhist master, 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. One of the few women of her generation to devote herself so completely to the pursuit of meditation, Dipa ma attained profound levels of insight in an astonishingly short time. As the teacher of Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein, Jack Kornfield, and others, she greatly influenced the practice of meditation and mindful living in the West.
Dipa Ma's profound wisdom and compassion continue to inspire and guide an ever-growing number of spiritual seekers and practitioners of every persuasion. Weaving together her powerful words and techniques with heartwarming biographical stories and encounters shared by family members, her students in India and the West, and prominent teachers of Buddhism and meditation in America, this is the only full account of Dipa Ma's extraordinary life and legacy.

Dipa Ma, Amy Schmidt, Blue Bridge, 175 pages, Paperback, 2005, $14.95
