TRUE VIRTUE by Sister Annabel Laity

This is the extraordinary autobiography of Sister Annabel Laity, the first Western woman to be fully ordained as a Buddhist nun by Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. From her childhood in Cornwall to a Tibetan nunnery in India to California via Greenham Common she quietly became a pre-eminent Buddhist teacher. The life may be simple but the living conditions were often harsh: Sister Annabel writes about the dharma life in the same way that she seems to live her own life – with mindfulness, compassion and love.  The stories and anecdotes are true inspirations, whether you follow the dharma yourself, are a woman struggling on the spiritual path, or simply enjoy a wide-ranging life story. A must-read.
