Publisher's Summary

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is a contemporary spiritual masterpiece and source of sacred inspiration that interprets Tibetan Buddhism for the West. Sogyal Rinpoche presents a radically new vision of living and dying. He shows how to go beyond our fear and denial of death to discover what it is in us that survives death and is changeless. Rinpoche explains simple yet powerful practices that listeners can use to transform their lives, prepare for death, and help the dying.

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

A beautiful book to listen to, as well as read. I read this book a while ago and felt a shift within myself, and in listening to this book, it was there again - I can recommend it to anyone who is looking for a deeper understanding to how this powerful illusion is working and who desires to live without FEAR.
