Summary of Sogyal Rinpoche s The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying Book Description:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 My first experience of death was when I was seven. I was preparing to leave the eastern highlands to travel to central Tibet. Samten, one of the personal attendants of my master, was dying. The monastery was saturated with an intense awareness of death, but it was not at all morbid or frightening. #2 The death of my master, Samten, shook me. I had just started understanding the power of the tradition, and I began to understand the purpose of spiritual practice. #3 The death of Samten taught me the purpose of spiritual practice: to understand the reality of death. The death of Lama Tseten taught me that it is not unusual for practitioners of his caliber to conceal their remarkable qualities during their lifetime. I understood that night that death is real, and that I would have to die. #4 I had to face many deaths during my lifetime. The most devastating was the death of my master Jamyang Khyentse, in 1959, the year of the fall of Tibet.

Living Dreaming Dying Book Description:

The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the best-known Tibetan Buddhist texts. It is also one of the most difficult texts for Westerners to understand. In Living, Dreaming, Dying, Rob Nairn presents the first interpretation of this classic text using a modern Western perspective, avoiding arcane religious terminology, keeping his explanations grounded in everyday language. Nairn explores the concepts used in this highly revered work and brings out their meaning and significance for our daily life. He shows readers how the Tibetan Book of the Dead can help us understand life and self as well as the dying process. Living, Dreaming, Dying helps readers to "live deliberately"—and confront death deliberately. One thing that prevents us from doing that, according to Nairn, is our tendency to react fearfully whenever change occurs. But if we confront our fear of change and the unknown, we can learn to flow gracefully with the unfolding circumstances of life rather than be at their mercy. Of course, change occurs throughout our life, but a period of transition also occurs as we pass from the waking state into sleep, and likewise as we pass into death. Therefore the author's teachings apply equally to living as well as to dreaming and dying. Through meditation instructions and practical exercises, the author explains how to: • Explore the mind through the cultivation of deep meditation states and expanded consciousness • Develop awareness of negative tendencies • Use deep sleep states and lucid dreaming to increase self-understanding as well as to "train" oneself in how to die so that one is prepared for when the time comes • Confront and liberate oneself from fear of death and the unknown

The Tibetan Book of the Dead Book Description:

‘Extraordinary … this work will be a source of inspiration and support to many’ His Holiness the Dalai Lama One of the greatest works created by any culture and overwhelmingly the most influential of all Tibetan Buddhist texts in the West, The Tibetan Book of the Dead has had a number of distinguished translations, but strangely all of these have been partial abridgements. Now the entire text has not only been made available in English but in a translation of quite remarkable clarity and beauty. A comprehensive guide to living and dying The Tibetan Book of the Dead contains exquisitely written guidance and practices related to transforming our experience in the daily life, on the processes of dying and the after-death state, and on how to help those who are dying. As originally intended this is as much a work for the living, as it is for those who wish to think beyond a mere conventional lifetime to a vastly greater and grander cycle.
