“A magnificent achievement. In its power to touch the heart, to awaken consciousness, [The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying] is an inestimable gift.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
A newly revised and updated edition of the internationally bestselling spiritual classic, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, written by Sogyal Rinpoche, is the ultimate introduction to Tibetan Buddhist wisdom. An enlightening, inspiring, and comforting manual for life and death that the New York Times calls, “The Tibetan equivalent of [Dante’s] The Divine Comedy,” this is the essential work that moved Huston Smith, author of The World’s Religions, to proclaim, “I have encountered no book on the interplay of life and death that is more comprehensive, practical, and wise.”
This modern interpretation of the Tibetan Book of the Dead outlines a path for spiritual growth.
A must read
I read this for the first time at 18 and for the third time at 36, and to date... no other book has touched me, changed my thinking, opened my mind and heart as much as this one has.
Truly life changing
No other book I have ever read has had as profound an impact on my life as this. It has changed the way I look at life and the way I look at death, and has done so with such incredible love, humor and profound affection. Thank you Sogyal Rinpoche for this amazing gem!
understanding where we come from and where we are going. an inspiring book to be read before it matters, to prepare for what is inevitably going to come.
