Synopsis

Disease and death are undeniably integral parts of human life. Yet when they manifest we are easily caught unprepared. To prepare for these, we need to learn how to skilfully face illness and passing away. A source of practical wisdom can be found in the early discourses that record the teachings given by the Buddha and his disciples. The chief aim of this book is to provide a collection of passages taken from the Buddha's early discourses that provide guidance for facing disease and death.
