Medicine and Compassion
by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche


Medicine and Compassion: A Tibetan Lama's Guidance for Caregivers

Compassion may be encouraged in medical care, but few Westerners believe it is possible to consciously develop it. Medicine and Compassion addresses this crucial issue. In this book Tibetan Lama Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has directly adapted Buddhist methods on how to train in compassion for an audience of health professionals. The book offers practical advice on dealing with angry patients, dying patients, and parents of dying children, and presents Tibetan Buddhist philosophy as a practical tool for helping encourage compassionate medical care while decreasing stress among medical professionals.

"I was dumbfounded by how much Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche comprehends the emotional challenges facing doctors in relationship to their patients. He nails it time and time again, and he makes that the context for the teachings on emptiness and compassion. Magnificent! I shall continue to re-read it just for the pleasure of the teachings, for the clarity of his mind and the purity of his heart."
Jon Kabat-Zinn.

"Deeply felt kindness and compassion generates a clarity of mind, a sense of being present for the person you are caring for."
Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche.

"A remarkable book."
Harvey Fineberg, President of the Institute of Medicine.
