When the Iron Eagle Flies: Buddhism for the West

by Ayya Khema

When the Iron Eagle Flies is a complete meditation course from one of the most beloved Buddhist teachers. In her usual direct style, Ayya Khema shows us the middle path-a path of simplicity. Her teachings unfold simply, free of jargon, for a contemporary world where our fevered pursuit of pleasure and comfort leaves us "like children playing in a house on fire, refusing to let go of our toys." This meditation course contains all the elements needed for a complete spiritual path. It is a practical guide to building meaning through awareness, containing a wealth of exercises and advice to help the reader along the path. Ayya Khema grounds her teaching in our ordinary, everyday experiences, and gradually shows us how to gain access to liberation and freedom.

Who Is My Self : A Guide to Buddhist Meditation

by Ayya Khema

"Ayya Khema is a meditators' meditator, a real expert, as clear about the nuts and bolts of technique as she is about the basic sanity and profound peacefulness that is the goal of all technique. Who is my Self? is a truly astonishing book. A commentary on the Potthapada Sutta, it discusses the well-known eight stages of meditative absorption. If you are interested in Buddhist meditation in all its color, depth, and refinement, you will want to pay close attention to this book." -- Norman Fischer, Co-Abbot, San Francisco Zen Center
