REVIEWS revered contemporary teachers, enhanced by elegant calligra- phy by the author. Guojun explores themes such as breathing, forgiveness, repentance, and self-compassion, windows through which readers can invite these teachings into their own lives. THE INTELLIGENT HEART A Guide to the Compassionate Life By Dzigar Kongtrul Shambhala 2016; 208 pp., $16.95 (paper) Sometimes, you can be happy that it’s not all about you. This latest offer- ing from Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche offers practical instruction on dis- covering happiness by shifting your focus from yourself to others. The compassion practices featured in this book include lojong (mind training) and tonglen (exchanging self for other). Dzigar Kongtrul also offers commentary on The Great Path of Awakening by the nineteenth-century Tibetan master Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, one of the founders of the reformist Rimé movement. The foreword is by Pema Chö- drön, a student of Dzigar Kongtrul’s. AWAKE AT THE BEDSIDE Contemplative Teachings on Palliative and End-of-Life Care Edited by Koshin Paley Ellison and Matt Weingast Wisdom 2016; 300 pp., $19.95 (paper) End-of-life care raises questions with no easy answers: How do we think about the dying? About death itself? What is the current state of pallia- tive and end-of-life health care, and how can we improve it? How do we care for the dying without becoming emotionally and spiritually depleted ourselves? In Awake at the Bedside, authors Ellison (cofounder of the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care) and Weingast (who works at the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies) have created a book not about dying but about life, and what living has to teach us. Leaders in the field offer wisdom for those who spend day and night bedside, with personal accounts from Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Cicely Saunders, and Derek Walcott, and instructions from doctors, dharma teachers, chaplains, poets, and caregivers. ♦ LION’S ROAR | MARCH 2016 76
