Thanks for that quote Bodom, you have such good taste in Dhamma literature! I loved her book "Pure and Simple", I don't know too much about her life, but just from that book I got a strong impression that this was no ordinary lay disciple, but a very, very wise woman who really knew the deeper aspects of the Dhamma, in fact her teachings reminded me of Ajahn Chah, they were that good.
"The heart of the path is quite easy. There’s no need to explain anything at length. Let go of love and hate and let things be. That’s all that I do in my own practice." - Ajahn Chah
