Synopsis

Coming to terms with the loss of a loved one is a major life challenge. In this moving book, the author, a longtime practitioner and teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, reveals how his grief over his mother's death, who had been an Alzheimer's patient for many years, deepened his ability to apply the Buddhist teachings in his own life. Using the traumatic experience of the family's ten-year battle with Alzheimer's disease as his anchor point, author Arnaud Maitland unfurls for the reader the intricacies of Tibetan Buddhism, so that the teachings assume an immediate practical relevance. The poignant account takes us through turbulent emotions, while grounding the narrative in a larger framework of Buddhist teachings on impermanence, suffering and the development of wisdom and compassion.

great for parents 7. Juni 2005
Von Chicago Kid - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My grandmother recently passed away and I recommended the book to my mother. This was easy since the book concerns the formidable experience of dealing with aging parents, but also is a poignant account of Tibetan Buddhism. So to give this book to a loved one who has lost thier own parent is a natural. The book itself can help people of any age deal with these traumas. This is a book that people who have an "interest" in Eastern spirituality will enjoy very much. It is also evident from reading the book that Living Without Regret is a labor of love. The book is concise and yet packed will all sorts of Buddhist teachings.

A REAL PROBLEM 17. August 2011
Von Bill Butler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Alzeimer's. I think I spelled that correctly. It's a real problem. I can't think of anything worse. Worse than poverty, cancer, stroke, insanity. You name it. This great practioner deals with this problem brillantly in this beautiful book. But it is also a book about spiritual practice. The author seems to have grown because of his mother's alzeimer's. It was very very rough for him. But he dealt with it in the very best way that he could. If you are getting older or have someone who is having problems in this area; it is very important for you to read this book. The following is something that I wrote about my mother. It is part of this review because there is a reason you are interested in buying and reading this book. Please read it. Thank you.

It was seven years ago. My mother was in a nursing home. She was senile and basically gone. I decided to see her everyday. And to be AT the nursing home all day. The workers began to think that I worked there. They gave me two meals a day! My plan was very simple. To cure my mother's senility. She slept all the time! And when she was awake, she did not really know where she was. I had her put in a wheelchair. The nurses did this for me everyday. I wheeled my mother around the nursing home. I would say hi to all the workers and nurses as I did so. My mother bagan to say hi as they began to greet her. There were many places where I took my mother. Her name was "Myrtle". So I named the outdoor places that we went. "Myrtle Tree" (named by me), she liked. "Myrtle Park".
I don't remember all the places that we went to. "Myrtle Garden" was wonderfdul. Nobody was in these places. Rarely. We had the whole nursing home to ourselves! In "Myrtle Garden" I would put my mother in a swing they had. Then we would swing! It held two people. I read to her when we were in the swing. I remember I read "Lord of the Rings" to her there. In the "Myrtle Room" we played cards. She loved Gin Rummy. And she beat me! I would take her all over the place. Christian church meeting where I would make friends with two Protestant ministers. Mom and me were a team. So we would go to church one day, and then we went to a Jewish meeting! And we arn't Jewish! Then a Catholic meeting. This was a tricky one. They gave Mom and me grape juice instead of wine. But the bread tasted good. We were there several times. We played games with the other elderlys. I played Bingo with them while my mother watched from her chair. My mother's favorite movie, "Oklaholma", we watched in the dining room on Thanksgiving. But she really loved the musical shows. I don't know why, but she loved the entertainer, Mario, who would show up every week. For my mother, I sang all the songs with the other elderlys. We made friends with the elderlys. I have many stories about them that I can't disclose now. They are too numerous. But Mario would say my mother's name and others while he sang. And my mother would come alive. She wanted to thank Mario after his show. So I would always wheel her to him to do just that. She also wanted to thank the other entertainers after their shows. I could go into more detail, but I won't. But here is the lesson: My mother was completely senile at the beginniong of my journey. And she was cured! She was cured of dementia. It was truly amazing. She died at three a.m. of a heart attack. While she was sleeping. I got up to see Mario with her. But it never came to be. I want this pebble of pain in me to get out. Why? Because my experience shows that your elderlys are not hopeless. Be with them. Do things with them. Allow them to wake up. Thank you for letting me share.
A Guidebook for Life 26. Juni 2008
Von Kimber Scott - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is so full of amazing insight and profound wisdom I may read it again with a pencil and highlighter in hand! The author teaches Buddhist philosophy by weaving it around the story of his mother's death from Alzheimer's disease. But, don't be fooled. This is not a book about dying. It's a book about living - without regret - and with a sense of awe and purpsose knowing that all things are impermanent.

Here is quote from the book which, I believe, is representative of the whole.

"We usually experience time and an external pressure and our relationshiop to it is strained. We look at the clock: 'Oh my, is it already that late?' We feel time nipping at our heels; it seems there is never enough time. Still, we believe there is plenty of time left before we die, although, in taking time for granted, we are likely to waste it."

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and know I will be turning to it again and again like I would return to a great teacher. I highly recommend it.
Living Without Regret 9. November 2006

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Not being a Buddhist, I was wary about how much I would understand in this Book. I found it was an easy read and it gave me comfort in the current situation of a relative dying with Alzheimers. The Author wrote the book after his Mother died from Alzheimers. Anyone would benefit from this book but I would especially recommend it to those going through some terminal relatives illness.
Living without regret: Human Experience in Light of Tibetan Buddhism 2. Dezember 2009
Von Edgar Meyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I find this book very helpful, especially for the elderly, who need to create a new approach to life. This wider approach has to include the rest of this life, the process of dying as well the preparation for the next life (by creating a lot of good karma).
