"The lojong teachings on working with destabilizing emotions are Tibet’s great gift to a world in desperate need of them. In Stop Biting the Tail You’re Chasing we hear the wise and patient voice of Anyen Rinpoche, fully immersed in these teachings as only a Tibetan tulku can be, along with his longtime collaborator, Allison Choying Zangmo, kindly speaking to us about how to apply this wisdom to our contemporary lives. Though the teachings are subtle and profound, this is a simple, accessible, and inspiring discussion. This is a book I will read again and again." —Norman Fischer, poet, Zen priest, author of Training in Compassion, and co-author of What Is Zen?: Plain Talk for a Beginner’s Mind

"Stop Biting the Tail You’re Chasing interweaves timeless wisdom from the greatest masters in Mahayana Buddhism with both Anyen Rinpoche’s and Khandro Allison Choying Zangmo’s own experience and advice, allowing Western, English-speaking readers the opportunity to access these teachings and apply them directly to their lives. We are grateful to them for these efforts and especially to Rinpoche for dedicating himself to this cause." —Sangye Khandro, Light of Berotsana, teacher and translator

"This volume is a treasure of profound Buddhist teachings on the trainings of the mind (lojong) that transmute every moment of our lives into true sources of benefit to oneself and others. I pray that we may all put them into practice." —Tulku Thondup, author of The Heart of Unconditional Love
