Product Information

Information: 414 pages, paperback

They say: 'What is it I hope for from this book? To inspire a quiet revolution in the whole way we look at death and care for the dying and the whole way we look at life, and care for the living'

An acclaimed spiritual masterpiece, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is a manual for life and death and a magnificent source of sacred inspiration from the heart of the Tibetan tradition. Sogyal Rinpoche delivers a lucid and inspiring introduction to the practice of meditation, to the nature of mind, to karma and rebirth, to compassionate love and care for the dying, and to the trials and rewards of the spiritual path. This jewel of Tibetan wisdom is the definitive spiritual classic for our times.

'A gentle, humane and eloquent guide' - Guardian 'One of the most helpful books I have ever read' - John Cleese

'Marvellous ... like all the great teachings, it is both simple and complex, and full of love and compassion' - Joanna Lumley

'Sogyal Rinpoche speaks directly and clearly to the Western mind and heart with humour, joy and great warmth' - Richard Gere

'I have encountered no book on the interplay of life and death that is more comprehensive, practical and wise. The perspective is forthrightly and profoundly Tibetan, but it is expounded so clearly that the reader has no trouble discerning on every page its universal import' - Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions

This is one of those books that most people know of, and may well have dipped into, at some time. It is a chunky book, with a lot to say, and can appear to be intimidating. This edition is the revised and updated tenth anniversary edition, and a very beautiful book. My copy arrived on exactly the day that I needed to immerse myself in something like this and there probably aren't any better texts, anywhere. But you do need to be in the right frame of mind for a book like this. So, if you want to read this book and do it justice (and allow it to work its magic upon you) then make a conscious decision to take a few days off, time for yourself, where you can keep work to a minimum, sit in the sun, read this book, and contemplate the universe. As far as I know, that really is the only way to read a book as powerful and important as this one. You will not be disappointed, if you take this approach with it, and the benefits and rewards of allowing yourself time and space to absorb Sogyal Rinpoche's beautiful words are immense.

Everyone takes something different away from a book like this one, but it is definitely a book that can speak to everyone, if we let it. Make reading this book a special occasion in your life, and give yourself space to read it through. Then, whenever you want to, it will be there as a treasure to fall back upon, and dip into, in the future.

Highly recommended reading.
