“Meditation is love. Enlightenment is great love.” Dipa Ma
Dipa Ma Barua, also known as Nani Bala Barua
was a Vipassana Buddhist Master Teacher.
Dipa Ma was a woman of extraordinary wisdom, concentration, and lovingkindness.
She was a rare example of a mother and grandmother who became a realized Buddhist Master through her unwavering determination and heart.
Dipa Ma taught many of the Vipassana Buddhist teachers in the West (including Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, and Joseph Goldstein), and the stories about her continue to inspire Buddhists and spiritual seekers today.
