Upasika Kee Nanayon and the Social Dynamic of Theravadin Buddhist Practice, by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (1995; 8pp./25KB)

In this essay, Thanissaro Bhikkhu examines the social milieu in which Upasika Kee lived and practiced her life of Dhamma. As he points out, the true practice of Buddhism has always gone against the stream of popular culture; a woman following the Buddha's path faces a particularly strong counter-current. It is little wonder, then, that Upasika Kee is rarely mentioned in Thai histories of Buddhism, for her path, like that of many other great masters before her who practiced, taught, and died in the forest, is one that leads to a goal that cannot be measured or praised in conventional social terms. (This essay was originally published as the Introduction to An Unentangled Knowing: Teachings of a Thai Buddhist Lay Woman, available from Mettā Forest Monastery.)
