Biografia breu
Sogyal Rinpoche (born 1947) is a Tibetan Dzogchen Lama of the Nyingma tradition. He has been teaching for over 30 years and continues to travel widely in Europe, America, Australia and Asia. He is also the founder and spiritual director of Rigpa—an international network of over 100 Buddhist centres and groups in 23 countries around the world—and the author of the best-selling book The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, which has been printed in 30 languages and 56 countries. In addition, Rinpoche is a frequent speaker at major conferences in all areas of society, including medicine and healing, universities and educational institutions, interfaith dialogue, movements for peace and non-violence, the world of business and leadership, and the field of serving the dying and hospice care.



Spiritual traditions all seem to prioritize comfort for the dying, even if that comfort comes from an elaborate metaphysical system in which the dead attain eternal life or reincarnation. I've always thought of Tibetan Buddhism as being one of the most tolerable traditions for a skeptic like myself, mainly because it is not as dogmatic or judgmental as modern interpretations of Judeo/Christian/Islamic scriptures.

Unfortunately, Rinpoche's writing is rife with jargon and mumbo-jumbo. There are a few essential truths here, but to get to them the reader has to wade through rivers of mysticism. Meditation is powerful - life is dreamlike - death is painful. We must learn to look at death head-on, and to die with dignity. Hospice organizations are necessary for many people.

The agnostic/atheist can learn from Rinpoche, as long as you have patience for a lot of the mind-bending nonsense

REVIEW From LibraryThing

Who dies? The answer to this question goes straight to the heart of Dzogchen, a 1,200-year-old school of Tibetan Buddhism that sees impermanence as the very essence of existence.

Sogyal Rinpoche grew up in the last generation of Tibetans who learned Buddhism as it was traditionally taught in Tibet. Schooled by his country's most revered masters, and later educated at Cambridge, Sogyal Rinpoche is uniquely prepared to bring this ancient tradition to the Western world today.

On Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying, Rinpoche presents a grand and transforming vision of life and death, introducing you to Tibetan practices that can help anyone live fully, while preparing for the extraordinary adventure that death offers each one of us.

What we call life and death, Rinpoche teaches, are merely shades of the same unbroken wholeness. By daring to see clearly the truth of our lives, and by exploring the part of us that is changeless and eternal, we can face the last moment of life without fear.

Masterfully taught, Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying is both a guide to this inner technology and a sacred document for listeners of all faiths and traditions.

A book to hang out with as a reference for the whole family... Interestedly the highest teachings are shared within this book, yet the vast majority of peeps would know this is so... and the author recognises that those teachings (unspecified by the author) are viewed as useful for peeps with PTSD of all kinds... A SELF-HELP book... I am not Buddhist by the way. . .

Hay mensajes que ni el tiempo ni la "verdad" de los opresores son capaces de borrar, que son imposibles de olvidar. El libro tibetano de la vida y de la muerte es más que un ejercicio de difusión del venerado Libro tibetano de los muertos. No en vano incorpora la palabra "vida" en su titulo, pues es también una guía espiritual, una propuesta para encauzar la vida hacia una existencia plena.
