"O, Beautiful End gives poignant, delicate and personal consideration to individuals who have died, yet transcends the particulars and extends to all deaths... these poems are Buddhist teachings as well as tributes," says Anne Waldman in her foreword to this first book by Zen teacher Geoffrey Shugen Arnold Sensei. This moving collection of memorial poems is both celebratory and elegiac, eloquent in its attempt to express the ineffable, full of rich and subtle detail yet universal.

And in doing so, they indeed fulfill Shugen Sensei's wish that they may "offer something worthwhile for [our] own living and dying, here, today."
