Description
Whereas Western society views death as something never to be spoken of—the last taboo—the Tibetan tradition incorporates meditation on death into everyday life. Tibetan Buddhists believe that a conscious awareness of one's own impermanence allows a person to live a happy, fulfilled life, and they have developed a wide-ranging literature on death, with inspirational poetry and prose, prayers, and practical works on caring for the dying. Presenting nine short Tibetan texts, this book includes important writings by the Second, Seventh, and Thirteenth Dalai Lamas, as well as by Karma Lingpa, author of the 14th-century Tibetan Book of the Dead.

"This is a practical and easy-to-understand read, a series of signposts to that doorway we must all pass through to our next life. It goes a long way towards transcending the negativity that Westerners attach to the implacability of impermanence and death."—Mandala
