Summary

This volume combines the advice and humour of a relationship book with the wisdom and compassion of a book on Buddhism. The author offers wisdom relevant to today's relationships in the stories of Buddhist women who have achieved enlightenment. Combining ancient texts with personal anecdotes, Larkin, an ordained dharma teacher, presents sound, if uncommon, advice.
