Anyen Rinpoche has skillfully woven the dharma teachings into these everyday contemplations on death which will be very beneficial especially for those in denial or dealing with loss. This is a handbook of daily instruction to prepare us all for our inevitable separations, losses and death and at the same time nurture the appreciation that all these situations are essential ingredients on the spiritual path.”—Tenzin Palmo, founder of Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery

Anyen Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhist master and teacher, and his longtime student and translator Allison Choying Zangmo present ancient and rich teachings on death in a contemporary, accessible manner.

Learn how to:

  • release your attachments,
  • embrace impermanence,
  • cultivate virtue,
  • and see the world as it really is—one day at a time.

Their practical, disciplined timeline encourages step-by-step development of qualities such as lovingkindness, compassion, generosity, and patience. Each day offers a short teaching followed by a specific, concrete exercise to help you reflect on and fully integrate the message.

Through vivid and evocative contemplative scenarios and action items, Living and Dying with Confidence brings practice off the cushion and into ordinary life.
