The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, written by Sogyal Rinpoche in 1992, is a presentation of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead or Bardo Thodol.

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, written by Sogyal Rinpoche in 1992, is a presentation of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead or Bardo Thodol. The author wrote, "I have written The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying as the quintessence of the heart-advice of all my masters, to be a new Tibetan Book of the Dead and a Tibetan Book of Life.

Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse. This groundbreaking book and international bestseller has a new preface by Jon Kabat-Zinn, as well as a foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Sogyal Rinpoche received teachings from an early age by highly respected teachers such as Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro, and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. He liberally quotes his teachers throughout, a strong point of this book. The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying,' has a new-age syncretic tone, and has the feel of being written to especially appeal to Western readers unfamiliar with Eastern spiritual traditions.

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the publication of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, a group of Sogyal Rinpoche's students have set up The Tibetan Blog of Living and Dying. This blog features some of the best audio and video teachings given by Sogyal Rinpoche on the book over the last two decades, as well as free podcasts, testimonies by students and readers from all over the world, interviews with well-known people and stories about how the book has touched people's lives and transformed the whole way we relate to life.

Popular Tibetan teacher Sogyal Rinpoche has transformed that ancient text, conveying a perennial philosophy that is at once religious, scientific, and practical. Through extraordinary anecdotes and stories from religious traditions East and West, Rinpoche introduces the reader to the fundamentals of Tibetan Buddhism, moving gradually to the topics of death and dying. That time I started to read The Book of Living and Dying. This book clearly explains what a dying person needs, how to help him or her to make the process as easy as possible.

Sogyal Rinpoche was born in Tibet and raised by one of the most revered spiritual masters of this century, Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö. With the Chinese occu-pation of Tibet, he went into exile with his master, who died in 1959 in Sikkim in the Himalayas. Rinpoche's reputation as an authority on the teachings associated with The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying and his dialogue with leading figures in the fields of psychology, science, and healing make him a sought-after speaker at international conferences and lectures.

IN THIS TIMELY BOOK, Sogyal Rinpoche focuses on h o w to understand the true meaning of life, h o w to accept death, and h o w to help the dying, and the dead. Death is a natural part of life, which we will all surely have to face sooner or later. To my mind, there are two ways we can deal with it while we are alive.

  • I read this book nearly 20 years ago and remember sobbing after finishing it. I couldn't put my finger on it then, but now realize that I was sensing the depth to which it would effect me and my life. Out of a desire to "come back to" my old Self -- one I have sorely missed lately -- I recently decided to read this book again. (I needed a new copy so that I could make fresh highlights and notations.) I'm amazed to see from where SO many of my "leanings," beliefs, and core values had come. This book had clearly laid the foundation for most -- if not all -- of my long-held interest in/study of alternative medicine and energy healing -- tools I've relied upon and successfully used for nearly two decades. More than that, this book rooted my understanding of "the way things work" in the universe and blended with the teachings of my Christian upbringing to provide me with a rich and unique perspective on how to navigate life and it's challenges.
    I'll tell you a secret (and non-believers may find this a fluke): Since re-starting this book two weeks ago, I've had many strange and wonderful synchronicities occur that have validated my re-discovering it. Re-reading it seems to be like hitting the "reset" button -- putting me back into the natural flow of life and returning me to the happier, more peaceful person I once was. I wish the same for you as you begin your own journey with Sogyal Rinpoche's masterpiece.

  • A friend recommended this to me when my mother went into hospice care. From the moment I started reading it, I was powerfully impacted, as if my eyes were being opened. Then, when my mother died much more quickly than was expected, this book continued to empower me through the process - not just of letting go - but the deeper process of understanding the very nature of life and death. My compassion, ability to forgive and my love increased powerfully. During the holiday season, I gave copies of this book to my husband, who is also being profoundly impacted by it, and friends. Now I'm thinking about ordering more copies, for family and friends. I consider this book a MUST READ for EVERYONE! .

  • My mother was dying. It was inevitable that the process couldn’t be reversed. She was suffering, she was frightened and it was clear that she needed emotional and physical help during her dying process.

    I was confused, helpless and full of fear. That time I started to read The Book of Living and Dying. This book clearly explains what a dying person needs, how to help him or her to make the process as easy as possible. I started to make some simple meditation exercises that are recommended in the book.

    3 weeks later I sat at her death bed, holding her hand. None of us was frightened. We felt peace, calm and love. She passed away in peace. In her last hours she told: “I am going home now.”

    The most important revelation I have gained from this book was how to see life and death as one whole unit. This means we can start preparing for dying while we are living our everyday life. We can understand from this book that living and dying are parts of the same natural process.

    The book describes buddhist teachings but it was written for the western world. It can be understood and accepted by non-buddhists and even for non-religious persons (like my mother and I).

    I recommand this book for those who are facing to help somebody in their dying processes and for those who are ready to prepare themselves for their own dying. This means to make a 20-30 minutes meditation exercise every day. The book is especially recommended for those healers who regularly deal with dying persons.

    It is clear from this book that handling death as a taboo like in the western societies, is harmful for the individuals and for the society as well. We have to speak about death as a normal process, as a natural part of our lives!

  • this is a wonderful book. it's one of those books that you can pick up anytime and open to any page and get a conscious and supportive message, whatever physical and emotional place you're in. i also purchased the Tibetan Book of the Dead at the same time, having skimmed that book years ago and wanting to get more deeply into it again. but Tibetan Book of the Dead didn't seem accessible to me, someone who has been very interested yet undisciplined in learning about Tibetan Buddhism and Hinduism. the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is a good entry point for me because Sogyal Rinpoche gives a it broader context and explains how we can approach the subject of death as we do the changing of seasons and the way we and our environment are connected and transforming all of the time. it's an excellent book whether you're looking for theory, practical meditation approaches or exercises, or -- as i was, a sort of guide book the the guide of the Tibetan Book of the Dead. highly recommend reading this and passing it along!
