A lovely story about a female in the time of the Buddha who attained enlightenment even after murdering her husband. Ajahn Sister Vayama deals with the question of how to relate to negative things that happen to us while we travel the path. Understanding the consequences of our actions and the way karma and its fruits effect our lives allows us to transform "bad" situations into the path.

"A Sangha is a community of resistance, resisting the speed, violence and unwholesome ways of living that are prevalent in our society. Mindfulness is to protect ourselves and others. A good Sangha will lead us in the direction of harmony and awareness. The substance of the practice is most important. The forms can be adapted." ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
