Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, published in 1992, is widely regarded as one of the most complete and authoritative presentations of the Tibetan Buddhist teachings ever written. It has demonstrated how these teachings can be at one and the same time accessible to everyone, and yet totally authentic and faithful to the tradition.
Acclaimed by people of all ages and backgrounds, as well as by Buddhist practitioners, Rinpoche's book has been adopted for use in courses, workshops, and retreats by a variety of groups and disciplines, therapeutic and spiritual. Many readers have remarked on how it carries all the immediacy and force of an oral teaching, and how, with repeated study and reflection, deeper meanings are continually revealed.
Since its publication in 1992, more than a million copies have been sold worldwide. As well as the English language editions in the UK, USA, Australia and India, translations have so far been undertaken in German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Swedish, Danish, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Norwegian, Finnish, Romanian, Korean, Brazilian, Hebrew, Russian and Tibetan.
