Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book by the Dutch-born former president of Dharma Enterprises had a substantial history before reaching the English-speaking world, having appeared last year in Dutch and been the basis of a TV show in the Netherlands. It deals sensitively with the decline and death of Maitland's mother owing to Alzheimer's and attempts to show how to "make use of life's opportunities to become more fully human by facing whatever happens without guilt or blame." Maitland sees suffering in the context of his own Tibetan Buddhism: his perspective on the important questions of aging and pain among the elderly is unusual and important. For most collections.
