Postby Myotai » Tue Oct 15, 2013 2:23 pm

I recently read the biography of Dipa Ma, really enjoyed it.

Can anyone recommened any books that are similar stories about other Theravadin Buddhists?

I find them really inspiring.

Thanks,

I agree, it is nice to read the autobiographies of these great monks and nuns, lay people.
