by Stephen Levine
Legend has it that centuries ago, the daughter of a cruel king refused to marry the uncaring man chosen for her, and instead became Kuan Yin, the first female buddha who watches over the dying and those who work with them. Stephen Levine is best known for his work on death and dying. His long career as a poet, Buddhist teacher, advisor and author helps him inspire readers to discover their own infinite capacity for mercy and compassion in the face of difficulty. Paperback, 160 pages.
