5.0 von 5 Sternen one of the most moving books I have ever read, 18. August 2003
Von Ein Kunde
This is one of the most moving and instructive books I have ever read. It is impossible to read this book and not to emerge with a heart more capable of love. I find myself picking up this book again and again when I feel in need of encouragement.
I do not agree that this book does not reveal much of Sister Chan Khong's Buddhist views. Sister Chan Khong has a unique way to teach Buddhist understanding through sharing the experiences that form her life. Possibly we Westerners tend to forget that the study of the texts and sitting meditation is not the most essential, the deepest part of the path. For me the deepest understanding of the teachings I read always happens as I try to live my life in the best way I can. If read "deeply", Sister Chan Khong's book can be seen to include a profound interpretation of the Diamond Sutra: The depth of giving is not measured in form, in how much money one has been able to collect for the good cause, but in the compassion and understanding that one has been able to evoke in oneself and others - transcending the perception of a self. Sister Chan Khong expresses this in the most beautiful way in various parts of the book, for instance in her "rice project" in the early days, for which she collected rice for the poor from a number of wealthy people, invoking compassion in them and in that way also addressing and healing the suffering that consists in a lack of love and care for others. In the Diamond Sutra, such work - living the teaching and sharing it with others - is said to create more merit and happiness than giving "as many precious jewels as the number of grains of sand in the Ganges".

5.0 von 5 Sternen beautiful and inspiring, 30. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This book was so inspiring to me. It is the life story of a woman that has stood in the face of the storm and has emerged with clarity, compassion, and hope. It teaches every one of us who is seeking to build a better world how to give everything we have, and if our work is destroyed tomorrow to begin to rebuild with faith, again and again.
