Beloved Buddhist nun Ayya Khema expertly guides the reader through ten meditations on generating loving-kindness and cultivating the fifteen wholesome qualities necessary for igniting compassion and boundless love.


Having escaped Nazi Germany in 1938,AyyaKhemahas singularly profound perspective on creating peace, unconditional love, and compassion. She gently teaches that inner peace is not necessarily natural or innate. Instead, peace should be considered a skill that needs intentional practiceevery day. Peace is the sum of many parts, namely the fifteen wholesome qualities the Buddha himself noted in the Metta Sutta,including usefulness, mildness, humility, contentment,receptivity, andothers.AyyaKhemaexpertly guides us through each individual condition, using her trademark humor and personal narrative, tohelpeach readershapetheir ownpath to self-transformation.
