My father practiced Tibetian Buddism and because of that I came to know of this book. I have delved into it, at various points in my life and I have always found wisdom there. But never more than when I learned my father was terminally ill with cancer. I read to him from this book while he was dying and it has been a great teacher to me since his passing. My father died with great dignity because of his beliefs, and I learned that contemplation on death is the most difficult and important work of all.

This is an amazing book full of the richness of the spiritual greatness of Tibet. Every one should read it, regardless of religious affiliation. Sagyol Rinpoche gives great insight into how to live your life so that you are ready to embrace death when your unexpected time comes. I would rate it number one as a guide to liberation.

Sogyal Rinpoché is one of the most amazing, and compassionate teachers living today. His kindness is only transcended by his ability to understand both the Eastern and Western mind, and to take things that seem complex and make them not so.
By giving this adaption of the Bardo Thrötol (called the Tibetan Book of the Dead by Westerners) he helps to better explain the Tibetan Buddhist view of samsara, and cyclical experience.
I read this book after it was recommended by KT Shedrup Gyatso, and Ven. Chöpak Rinpoché, and now I shall never be without it.
Tashi Deleg!

Very well written (translated) in English, the book is inspirational. I wish I discovered it earlier. Understanding death not as a threat and something to be fearful of, but as a way to understand how to enjoy a more meaningful life is the most profound concept the "modern / western" world has lost / forgotten. Highly recommended book.

"The Tibetan Book Of Living And Dying" is an exceptional reading experience. It is written in a way that makes it easy to understand and very informative. The topics which are discussed in this book are important for everyone who would like to live a life full of love and a true understanding of life and death itself. I would recommend it to everyone!

Very good piece on death, the process of dying and the art of dying. Derived from ancient Tibetan knowledge and wisdom. One important point is that if you are prepared for death and know what to expect, it gives you peace of mind, reduces fear, and makes it easier to live your current life fully. I’ve bought several copies of this book and distributed it amongst the people close to me, with my wish that I want do die as instructed in this book, and that I want to have this book read to me on my death bed. In case you are confronted with death in your close circle, consider reading some passages of this book to the one who is dying, to ease their fear and to prepare them for what is coming.

There's a lot of very interesting material in this book. I found descriptions of the human condition and basic tenets of Buddhism to be intelligently written, and to be inspiring at times. However, I'd like to issue a warning to skeptical people like me who have little interest in unproven or unprovable opinions and expressions of "faith" in their Buddhism. This book spends a lot of time on Tibetan ritual. It cites numerous examples of things the author has seen that seem to prove reincarnation, the possibility and power of enlightenment, karma, near death experiences, etc. When enlightened monks die, did you know that their bodies often don't rot? Or that their bodies disappear into thin air, or that rainbows appear thousands of miles away? That dead monks bodies stay warm for weeks? These things may or may not be true, but I'm just skeptical enough to not want to take the author's word for them. If you tackle this book, brace yourself to read about a lot of belief topics, and then prepare to be accused of being too cynical and capitive of your own ego for doubting it. I would categorize this book as religious Buddhism, as opposed to philosophical Buddhism. An aside: the author's reverence and love for his teachers and his faith is truly touching. His knowledge is great, his love is great, but I'm not sure that makes him the best possible reporter for those who are seeking truth instead of opinion.

I read this book during a very relaxing vacation and would advise this for other readers, too. Its intricate train of thought asks for a quiet sourrounding to appreciate the words and let them sink in.
It's not an easy read, but definitely suited for newbies to buddhism like me. A bit of patience is required and this is not a book for 10-minute readings on the tube.
It opened up the world of buddhism to me, so to speak.

Imagine my surprise as a thirty-something woman, educated and trained as an attorney, raised in the Lutheran faith, to begin to read this book full of passages I had already writen within my heart. How strange it was to at once feel "normal" in that at least one other being saw the world as I did. And inside, a smile began to glow which I find I cannot repress. That it is all possible. That it could all make sense. That visions and ideas from my earliest childhood are not symptoms to be categorized within DSM-IV. I earlier thought to write Sogyal Rinpoche a letter, to request an audience. But then, we are already friends. And he already knows me beyond the people who at my side have shared the days of this life.

This book gives you a spirutal, personal and intimate understanding of death and dying. More than that, it compels you to stop and take a deep and serious look at your own life and your own death. The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying helps to alievate your own fear of dying and helps you take the responsibility to prepare for your death. At the same time, it gently helps you prepare yourself for the death and dying of a loved one. The teachings and personal experiences of Sogyal are simple to understand and intrepret and incorporate into your personal life. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for every introspective person as well as for those facing the death of a loved one.
