Description: 

Sogyal Rinpoche discusses his book, "The Tibetian Book of the Living and Dying," which resulted from 10 years of work. He starts by pointing to the importance of the message and method of the teacher as more important than the student-master relationship. The teacher serves as a mirror for the student, with the contemplation of death an essential part of living life to the fullest. Because Westerners are always in a hurry, Rinpoche continues, he wrote the book to make Buddhism easily understood. He emphasizes meaning in life and hope in death, filling the book with examples to illustrate these twin points. He also provides an explanation of reincarnation, and concludes by pointing to meditation and contemplation as the means for getting in touch with oneself.|TIBETIAN BOOK OF THE LIVING AND DYING : AN INTRODUCTION TO BUDDHISM / Sogyal Rinpoche. - Sogyal Rinpoche discusses his book, "The Tibetian Book of the Living and Dying," which resulted from 10 years of work.
