Praise for Compassion and Emptiness in Early Buddhist Meditation 'Venerable Analayo brings a meticulous textual analysis of Pali texts, the Chinese Agamas and related material from Sanskrit and Tibetan to the foundational topics of compassion and emptiness. While his analysis is grounded in a scholarly approach, this study is a helpful guide for meditation practice.' Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo 'Arising from the author's long-term, dedicated practice and study, this book provides a window into the depth and beauty of the Buddha's liberating teachings.' Sharon Salzberg Praise for Mindfully Facing Disease and Death 'An invaluable and extraordinary resource on the profound teachings by the Buddha on dying, death, and grieving. Bhikkhu An?layo has given a great gift to all of us by bringing together in this book the compassionate wisdom of the Buddha on our mortality.' Roshi Joan Halifax 'I believe the Buddha would rejoice in this book and exhort all of us to read it and apply the medicine within. This will help to bring about the deepest healing of all - the healing of the mind and the heart - even if we are slipping over the final frontier of death itself.' Vidyamala Burch
