Teachings from the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
How did this Tibetan guide to dying sell three million copies?
In his foreword to the book, the 14th Dalai Lama says:. In this timely book, Sogyal Rinpoche focuses on how to understand the true meaning of life, how to accept death, and how to help the dying, and the dead Death and dying provide a meeting point between the Tibetan Buddhist and modern scientific traditions. I believe both have a great deal to contribute to each other on the level of understanding and practical benefit. Sogyal Rinpoche is particularly well placed to facilitate this meeting; having been born and brought up in the Tibetan tradition, he has received instructions from some of our greatest Lamas.

But since its publication 25 years ago, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying has sold more than three million copies. Written by a Tibetan lama named Sogyal Rinpoche, it might be described as a guidebook to a good life, and a good death. Clinicians, hospice workers and psychologists have applauded it for the comfort it has given to the terminally ill.
