Description

To learn how to die is to learn how to live. With these words, Sogyal Rinpoche introduces us to a wisdom tradition that he calls a sacred technology— Tibetan Buddhism. This bestselling author and spiritual teacher brings the blessings of these ancient teachings directly to a new generation of listeners with Living Well, Dying Well.

Before Tibet fell to the Communist Chinese in the 1950s, it was home to several of this century's most eminent masters of traditional Buddhism. These legendary figures were the personal teachers of Sogyal Rinpoche. They passed on to him the richest of all spiritual treasures: a way to bring kindness and compassion into each action we take, knowing that how we live and die creates the future of our world.

Living Well, Dying Well distills Tibetan Buddhism's core teachings about living and dying into one lucid session. This modern classic that invites us to face death without fear, knowing that it is like a mirror in which the true meaning of life is ultimately reflected.

Additional contents include life and the fear of death; aging; impermanence: the great truth; two aspects of the mind; three wisdom tools of Buddhism; teachings of Milarepa; care of the dying; finding your true nature; and more.

Getting old sucks, let's face it. But once an ally like Ram Dass describes the situation with honesty, humor and wisdom, one is finally able to see the clear path through. I listen to this at night when I'm trying to sleep. I wake up feeling pretty good!

Sogyal Rinpoche's work has presented itself in my life at different times, times when I really needed to "hear" him, and LIVING WELL, DYING WELL is no exception. His way of teaching is accessible without being dumbed-down or preachy.

His teachings are so profound in such a light hearted, simple fashion, that I find myself remembering pieces from years ago.
