An enlightening, inspiring, and comforting guide for existence and Dying that the New York Times calls, “The Tibetan an identical of [Dante’s] The Divine Comedy,” that is the crucial paintings that moved Huston Smith, writer of The Global’s Religions, to proclaim, “I’ve encountered no E-book at the interaction of existence and Dying that may be extra complete, sensible, and sensible.”

In 1927, Walter Evans-Wentz revealed his translation of an difficult to understand Tibetan Nyingma textual content and referred to as it the Tibetan E-book of the Dead. Standard Tibetan instructor Sogyal Rinpoche has reworked that historic textual content, conveying a perennial philosophy that may be immediately spiritual, clinical, and sensible. Via ordinary anecdotes and tales from spiritual traditions East and West, Rinpoche introduces the reader to the basics of Tibetan Buddhism, transferring progressively to the themes of Dying and demise.

Ideas comparable to reincarnation, karma, and bardo and practices comparable to meditation, tonglen, and phowa train us the right way to face Dying constructively. Consequently, existence turns into a lot richer. Like Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Sogyal Rinpoche opens the door to an entire enjoy of Dying. It’s as much as the reader to stroll Via. –Brian Bruya
