Sogyal Rinpoche
Price 22.00
In this major and comprehensive work, Buddhist meditation master and international speaker Sogyal
Rinpoche brings together the ancient wisdom of Tibet with modern research on death and dying and the
nature of the universe. With unprecedented scope, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying clarifies the
majestic vision of life and death that underlies The Tibetan Book of the Dead. Sogyal Rinpoche presents
simple yet powerful practices from the heart of the Tibetan tradition that anyone, whatever their religion
or background, can do to transform their lives, prepare for death and help the dying. Rinpoche shows
the hope there is in death: how we can go beyond denial and fear to discover what it is in us that survives
death and is changeless. He presents a lucid, inspiring, and complete introduction to the practice of
meditation, to karma and rebirth, and to the trials and rewards of the spiritual path. He gives advice on
how to care for the dying with love and compassion and offer them spiritual assistance. Rinpoche
presents his own vision of the near-death experience from the Tibetan perspective. He explains in detail
the "bardos," those states of consciousness after death that have fascinated and tantalized Western
artists, psychologists, scientists, doctors, and philosophers ever since the publication of The Tibetan
Book of the Dead in 1927. The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is not only a spiritual masterpiece but
also a manual, a guide, a work of reference, and a source of sacred inspiration. It has been written to
inspire all who read it to begin the journey to enlightenment and so become "servants of peace," working
in the world with joy, wisdom, and compassion to take part in safeguarding the future of humanity.
