Living and Dying with Confidence is a daily companion for embracing life, preparing for death and awakening to reality. 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 and accessible manner. Their practical, disciplined timeline encourages step-by-step development of qualities such as loving kindness, compassion, generosity and patience. Each day offers a short teaching followed by a specific, concrete exercise to help one reflect upon and fully integrate the message therein.

“Anyen Rinpoche has skillfully woven the dharma teachings into these everyday contemplations on death, which will be very beneficial, especially for those dealing with loss.” (Tenzin Palmo, founder of Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery)

"This is a remarkable book for anyone, not just Buddhists, because it is a guide to assist us to think through, interact with our inner wisdom and to rise above our fears of death. It is an excellent tour tool to use also for bookgroups as well as a skillfully designed and planned contemplative self-study aid. Journaling is encouraged by the authors who have carefully thought through many exercises and questions to guide the reader through and past blockages and resistences. It truly is a gift from teachers who are filled with knowledge and good will to help us live and die peacefully. A one of a kind gift. Like having a a Buddha in a book guided tour." ~ Amazon Reviews
