"Who Is My Self? gives us the recipe and the motivation to practice what is accessible to all, yet accomplished by few."
– Inquiring Mind
"Ayya Khema is a meditators' meditator, a real expert, as clear about the nuts and bolts of technique as she is about the basic sanity and profound peacefulness that is the goal of all technique. Who is my Self? is a truly astonishing book. A commentary on the Potthapada Sutta, it discusses the well-known eight stages of meditative absorption. If you are interested in Buddhist meditation in all its color, depth, and refinement, you will want to pay close attention to this book."
– Norman Fischer, Co-Abbot, San Francisco Zen Center
"Ayya Khema's teachings are strongly grounded in a practical, daily-life perspective, yet she knows how to experience sublime states in meditation. In this excellent book, she lays out the path specified by the Buddha himself--a path that leads to transcendent joy and liberation from suffering."
– Sandy Boucher, author of Turning the Wheel and Opening the Lotus
"Abounds with down to earth wisdom and contemporary relevance...a wonderful practical introduction to the practice of Buddhist meditation."
– Booknews (Australia)
"Khema expertly translates the Buddha's powerful words...into terms which the lay Buddhist, and even the non-Buddhist, can understand...she is well equipped to teach the ways of the Buddhist faith and its search for the real self."
– NAPRA ReVIEW
"A much appreciated and valued contribution."
– Wisconsin Bookwatch
