5.0 out of 5 stars Not just about living and dying, 29 Jun 2001
This review is from: The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying (Paperback)
Sogyal Rinpoche's language is easy to understand and speaks directly to the heart. His moving account of his own personal experiences with death makes sure that readers quickly identify with what is regarded in the West as a bit of a taboo subject. Not only does he expound on Buddhist or specifically Dzogchen philsophy but he gives clear poetical examples and metaphors that enable the reader to experience the mind of an elightened teacher. He offers much insight on meditation and on the experiences that result. This is one of those books that becomes a sort of close companion especially if one feels lost or unable to cope with death (and perhaps life as well). The practice of Tonglen is one which many people have found to be particularly good in restoring feelings of love and compassion - something which is often lacking in our lives!
