Publisher's Summary

Death Is Like a Mirror in Which the True Meaning of Life Is Reflected

Who dies? The answer to this question goes straight to the heart of Dzogchen, a 1,200-year-old school of Tibetan Buddhism that sees impermanence as the very essence of existence.

Sogyal Rinpoche grew up in the last generation of Tibetans who learned Buddhism as it was traditionally taught in Tibet. Schooled by his country's most revered masters and later educated at Cambridge, Sogyal Rinpoche is uniquely prepared to bring this ancient tradition to the Western world today.

In Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying, Rinpoche presents a grand and transforming vision of life and death, introducing you to Tibetan practices that can help anyone live fully while preparing for the extraordinary adventure that death offers each one of us. What we call life and death, Rinpoche teaches, are merely shades of the same unbroken wholeness. By daring to see clearly the truth of our lives, and by exploring the part of us that is changeless and eternal, we can face the last moment of life without fear.

Masterfully taught, Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying is both a guide to this inner technology and a sacred document for listeners of all faiths and traditions.

Very inspirational and Informative

This is a very informative book. It is unusual information not generally availanlw. I will listen to it more than once in order to comprehend mountain fully. It was so interesting I didn't want to stop listening. The sweet and unassuming personality of the author comes through and definitely enhances the listening experience.

Fabulous

Wonderful and humorous lecture. But Sogyal only gives us a small glimpse of an incredible subject.
I hope there will be much more of these wonderful teachings by Sogyal Rnpoche available on Audible in the near future. They are very helpful and insightful. Absolutely highly recommended listening.

Surprisingly lacking seriousness

Lacks seriousness, content is not well structured, teachings are sparse, feels like a picnic more than a dharma teaching. I would get my money back if I could.

Enlightening.. Eye opening

I was skeptical at first , thinking this might not be good or captivating. The lecture was eye opening when explaining basic wisdom principles and the afterlife .

So accessible and insightful

His voice draws you in immediately. The words are a dense tapestry that have me listening over and over finding such relevance in my life. I wish I had been open to this book sooner
