This is by far the few gems of dhamma books that everyone should read. It provides practitioner a road map and a clear explanation of how the dhamma should be practiced. The explanation by Upasika Kee Nanayon is excellently simple, down to earth and simply put it "right to the heart".In short, this is the book that every dhamma practitioner should read.
I just started reading this one, and it's kicking butt! Straight forward, no bs kinda Buddhist book, and it's by a woman! :) "There's nothing of any substance to the physical properties of the body, which are all rotten and decomposing. The body is like a rest room over a cesspool. We can decorate it on the outside to make it pretty and attractive, but on the inside it's full of the most horrible, filthy things.

This is a wonderful book. Thanissaro Bhikkhu, the translator, did a great job in capturing the urgency and ardency of Upasika Kee's teachings on the Dhamma. I would recommend this book for anyone who's got an established practice who might be looking for a more in-depth exposition of the Dhamma in fluid form. Know, of course, that Upasika Kee was a Thai lay practitioner who lived in a unique circumstance. This informs her teachings, and also the language used. I think Thanisarro does a good job
So far I am loving this book...
A excellent book that is direct and to the point. Upasika is a inspiration to all of us on the path.
