Description About the author Contents
 
A fascinating look at Buddhist, especially Tibetan, views of death and their implications for a Buddhist bioethics.

This book explores the Buddhist view of death and its implications for contemporary bioethics. Writing primarily from within the Tibetan tradition, author Karma Lekshe Tsomo discusses Buddhist notions of human consciousness and personal identity and how these figure in the Buddhist view of death. Beliefs about death and enlightenment and states between life and death are also discussed. Tsomo goes on to examine such hot-button topics as cloning, abortion, assisted suicide, euthanasia, organ donation, genetic engineering, and stem-cell research within a Buddhist context, introducing new ways of thinking about these highly controversial issues.

Into the Jaws of Yama, Lord of Death: Buddhism, Bioethics, and Death, Karma Lekshe Tsomo, Paperback, Suny Press, July 2006, 288 Pages, $27.95
