"This jewel of a book is full of sound, practical advice. Not just highly recommended but essential reading." ( The Middle Way)
"This book is a valuable guide to the path of meditative insight and loving compassion. It is direct, clear, and inspiring." (Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness)
"Essential reading for hearts inclined to the path." ( DharmaCrafts)
"Few introductory books are both simple and profound. Ayya Khema has achieved both." ( North American Board for East-West Dialogue)
"Of special help are the Ayya's simple, grounded instructions to aid us in our everyday lives to develop calmness of mind and insight into our human existence...forthright and resolute guidance for the journey." ( Karuna: A Journal of Buddhist Meditation)
"I just finished reading Being Nobody, Going Nowhere, and I just wanted to tell you how much it has helped me feel grounded in regards to my search on the spiritual path. Her manner of writing is so clear and meaningful and easy to grasp. These are the kinds of books that I like to underline, ear flap, and carry with me everywhere for continual support and inspiration. This is the first book I read on Buddhism, and in 31 years I finally feel like 'I'm home.' What an incredible feeling to finally have all of my 'inklings' and intuitive moments come together and make complete sense regarding life!" (From an unsolicited reader email)
