Published as a part of the series by VRI on the 'Great Disciples of the Buddha', this book aims to motivate old students to continue their practice seriously as well as to inspire new students to walk the same path as the exemplary practitioners of Vipassana meditation.
Kisagotami was born in a poor family in Savatthi. She lost her only source of happiness, when her little son, born after a long wait, died of a snakebite. Her whole life turned upside down. She refused to admit that her son was dead and went to the Buddha in a desperate attempt to revive him.
This book contains the life story of Kisagotami, who was regarded as the foremost in wearing coarse-rags robes.
This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators as well as non-meditators.
