Review

"Munindra's view of the Buddhist path, his scholarship, and his insight all helped me go beyond my fears and self-doubt to pursue meditation practice wholeheartedly."--Sharon Salzberg "A kaleidoscopic view of one of the most influential figures in the spread of Buddhism in the West. Anagarika Munindra was one of a kind -- wise, delightful, intriguing -- and a fully human being."--Daniel Goleman

"Munindra was one of the most important teachers for Westerners in the establishment of Vipassana and mindfulness meditation. He was a warm, openhearted, scholar of immense learning, a pragmatic and truly compassionate teacher."--Jack Kornfield

"Knaster skillfully weaves teachings and personal stories. This is a wonderful introduction to a teacher whose students are now household names: Sharon Salzberg, Daniel Goleman, Jack Kornfield. This deeply felt, loving portrait of a modern Buddhist master will also inspire those on their own journeys."--Tricycle
