    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 Whenever we excrete anything we ourselves are repelled by it; yet even though we're repelled by it it's there inside us in our intestines decomposing full of worms awful smelling There's just the flimsiest membrane covering it up yet we fall for it and hold tight to it We don't see the constant decomposition of this body in spite of the filth and smells it sends outhahaha this is gonna be a great book

    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 in depth exposition of the Dhamma in fluid form Know of course that Upasika Kee was a Thai lay practitioner who lived in a uniue circumstance This informs her teachings and also the language used I think Thanisarro does a good job in capturing this all though he does favor his own set of translations eg inconstancy vs impermanence; disbanding vs passing away; stress vs suffering I find it helpful in broadening one's perspectives regarding the Buddha's Dhamma
