HASH(0x8c683678) out of 5 stars For in that sleep of death what dreams may come 22 May 2007
By Hewitt Brooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Well now, there's no getting around the fact that this book is about Buddhism, and it's also the case that if you absolutely don't believe in the possibility of reincarnation, then the whole business might not appear to make any sense. And yet...if there lingers in your mind the faintest openness to the notion that life doesn't end at "death" but may well wander on into another life, and then still another, you might find this book a revelation and even a delight. Try, perhaps, reading just the first 20 pages or so while loitering in the bookstore: one might find oneself hooked. The book is about life, death and, most of all, about right now. This is a profound text to be treasured and pored over, I believe. I recommend that you give it a shot. You just might change your life for all eternity, so to speak.

HASH(0x8c984414) out of 5 stars Life and Death in Every Moment 5 Jun. 2007
By Carole Fleming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Some of the most difficult to understand teachings found in Buddhism are the teachings on the experience of bardo - the space in between or, one could say, life, death and transition. In Mind Beyond Death, The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche has made these teachings accessible for the lay reader and the more serious student of Buddhism alike. In clear, concise prose, with wit and humor he brings these teachings into the realm of our ordinary experience and helps us make a connection between the larger unknown of death and the experience of transition in our everyday life. As others have pointed out, he presents the full complement of bardo teachings without diluting them, but it is his ability to use these teachings to highlight this lifetime and its potential for waking up that makes this such a powerful reading experience and guide.

HASH(0x8d7417a4) out of 5 stars An Excellent Guidebook for Living and Dying Well 15 May 2007
By Susan Busby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mind Beyond Death by the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche is an engaging and comprehensive guide to living well and dying well. The book is based on the six bardos or intervals of waking life, meditation, dreaming, dying, in between life and death, and becoming. It provides step-by-step practices to work with what arises for us as we travel through each bardo. The premise of the book seems to be that we can prepare for dying well by working with our thoughts and emotions while alive. The natural side effect of practicing while alive is that this also allows us to live in manner that is more peaceful and sane. Very dense material is presented from multiple sources in an accessible way that is easy to read. Although the book is easy to read, the serious student of Buddhism will find that the book also offers a wealth of instruction at many levels and for multiple practices.

HASH(0x8cbc64c8) out of 5 stars really useful stuff 23 May 2007
By Carmen M. Rumbaut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The author pulls no punches in this book. I got the feeling that he wasn't holding back any information, although he often cautioned the reader that certain practices are better learned under the personal guidance of a teacher.

He gave a clear outline of Buddhist practices into which you could then fit in the information. Sometimes Buddhist teachings go into such ornate details that you forget what the whole point is. This book went back and forth from a wide perspective to the specifics.

The book can be read at many levels. Both beginners and advanced practitioners would benefit. Also, it is helpful for those who interpret Buddhist views within a psychological framework, as well as for those who believe in reincarnation.

And this is all done in a friendly, conversational style, with wit and compassion!

HASH(0x8c96a09c) out of 5 stars A True Wish Fulfilling Gem 5 July 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As I've grown older I have truly relished the eruption of Tibetan wisdom literature and commentaries "coming online", as it were. Having cut my teeth on D.T. Zusuki and Herbert Guenther, the appearance of Thurman, Garfield, and now Ponlop Ripoche has further deepened and matured my appreciation of the compassion that comes out of life to help us. Ripoche's work is, for me, a true mile/gem/stone. It is a truly reflective work that I can only compare, in my own meditative experience, to reading St. Agustine's Confession. There is genius in the economy of words, only outshined by their precision and communicative power. I have been graced with such great teachers who awakened and deepened my "reflective ear". As I read Ripoche's work each word, phrase and paragraph echos with insight inspiring power, congealing long threads of thought both Western and Eastern. I do apologize if this review seems like a fawning paean. What I wishing to convey is the deep meaning that is redolent within this work, and the opportunity for you, also, to take a plunge (if you already haven't). It is truly a unique work of great power and relevance. It is the best work to emerge, to date, for our Western lebenswelt that deals with the experience of death and beyond -- and by that our life, right now.
