Reviews

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying interprets Tibetan Buddhism and its views on the afterlife. "Fear of death and ignorance of the afterlife are fueling the destruction of our planet," asserts Rinpoche. Indeed, Western people are taught to deny and fear death. The wisdom of Buddha, however, states that life and death are one entity. Death is a mirror through which the whole of life is reflected. Rinpoche explains the Buddhist philosophy of death in simple yet dynamic terms and tells us how we can transform our lives, prepare for death, and help the dying by employing these beliefs. The underlying theme is that preparing for and accepting our finitude help us to live more responsible and productive lives. The text is ably read by Rinpoche and Lisa Brewer, Charles Tart, and Michael Toms. Recommended for academic libraries.-Ravonne A. Green, Emmanuel Coll. Lib., Franklin Springs, Ga.

"Sogyal Rinpoche...has delivered the Tibetanequivalent of 'The Divine Comedy.' One could imaginethat this is what Dante might have written had he beena Buddhist metaphysician rather than a Christian poet." --"New York Times Book Review"Rinpoche's teachings have much to offer.... His down-to-earth tone, peppered with songs and poetry from Buddhist sages, takes away much of the intense fear of death and makes it seem like an old friend."--"Los Angeles Times"A magnificent achievement. In its power to touch the heart, to awaken consciousness, it is an inestimable gift."--"San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
