“Watts and Tomatsu provide an unprecedented look into modern Buddhist practices of caring for the dying and bereaved. This book is an indispensable field manual for contemplative caregivers, and a must-read for anyone drawn to end-of-life care.”—Willa B. Miller and Cheryl A. Giles, coeditors of The Arts of Contemplative Care

“A wonderful contribution to the emerging discussion on how to develop spiritual, compassionate support for the dying in our society.”—Anyen Rinpoche, author of Journey to Certainty and Dying With Confidence

“These authors intelligently ask how Buddhists worldwide, right now, are helping with dying, and find that there are so many ways. They also show how we can do a better job, individually, collectively, and institutionally. This book is a treasure-trove—we will most definitely use it in classes.”—Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown, Ph.D., Professor, Naropa University Buddhist Chaplaincy program
