Advice on Dying: And Living a Better Life

Advice on Dying: And Living a Better Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone dies, but no one is dead, " goes the Tibetan saying. It is from this very intersection of the impermanent and the continual — the crux of the life-and-death flow — that this powerful book takes flight. In Advice on Dying, His Holiness the Dalai Lama shows readers how to adjust attitudes and embrace virtuous thoughts to prepare for death, whether it is our own or that of a loved one. With vivid and fascinating detail, he unveils the levels of consciousness through which we pass during the phases of dying and also when sleeping, dreaming, and during orgasm.

The author of the phenomenal bestsellers How to Practice and The Art of Happiness, the Dalai Lama stresses in Advice on Dying the need for preparation. We must be familiar with the processes and practices of death so that, in moments of great physical or mental weakness, we may remain focused, virtuous, and resolute. Readers will discover the processes by which they can remove the obstacles interfering with a favorable death, adapt to the "Intermediate State between lives, " and progress to the rewards of serenity.

Synopsis:

This revelatory volume shows readers how to confront death--along with inevitable currents of life--with a deep-seated preparedness built on virtue, focus, and inner strength.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 239-240).

About the Author

His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, born in 1935, was recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of the Thirteenth Dalai Lama. The spiritual leader of Tibet, and of the movement to free it from oppression, he is a Nobel Peace Laureate. The first Dalai Lama to come to the West, he speaks widely for ecumenism, human compassion, environmental protection, and world peace.
