In a society in which the fact of death is obscured by fear and denial, we are in dire need of teachers who can show us how to leave this world with grace and dignity, and to place death in its true perspective. Graceful Exits offers such guidance in the form of 108 stories recounting the ways in which Hindu, Tibetan, and Zen Buddhist masters, both ancient and modern, have confronted their own deaths. By directly presenting the grace, clarity, and even humor with which great spiritual teachers have met the end of their days, it provides inspiration and nourishment to anyone truly concerned with the fundamental issues of life and death.

One of the Cardinal's final acts was to compose this book of memoirs, not so much an autobiography as it is a montage of reflections to be shared, in hopes that everyone will one day understand and receive the spiritual peace of God.
