About the Book

An acclaimed spiritual masterpiece, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is a magnificent source of sacred inspiration from the heart of the Tibetan tradition. Sogyal Rinpoche delivers an introduction to the practice of meditation and goes on to address a range of topics, including the nature of mind, karma and rebirth, compassionate love and care for the dying, and the trials and rewards of the spiritual path. This treasure of wisdom is widely regarded as one of the most complete and authoritative presentations of Tibetan Buddhist teachings ever written.

Sogyal Rinpoche was born in Tibet and raised by one of the most revered spiritual masters of this century, Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö. With the Chinese occupation of Tibet, he went into exile with his master, who died in 1959. After university studies in Delhi and Cambridge, England, he acted as translator and aide to several leading Tibetan masters and began teaching in the West in 1974. Rinpoche sees his life’s task as transplanting the wisdom of Buddha to the West by offering training as described in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.

“As a guide to the Tibetan tradition and its insights into life and death, Sogyal Rinpoche is without peer.”
