Description About the author Contents
 
Buddhism teaches that death can be a springboard to enlightenment yet for all but the most advanced meditators, it will be the gateway to countless future lives of suffering in samsara. Tulku Thondup wrote this guide to help us heal our fear and confusion about death and strengthen our practice in anticipation of this transition, and to help us realize the enlightened goal of ultimate peace and joy, not only for death and rebirth, but for this very lifetime. In simple language, he distills a vast range of sources, including scriptures, classic commentaries, oral teachings, and firsthand accounts.
The book includes:
An overview of the dying process, the after-death bardo states, and teachings on why, where, and how we take rebirth
Accounts by Tibetan "near-death experiencers" (delogs), who returned from death with amazing reports of their visions
Ways to train our minds during life, so that at death, all the phenomena before us will arise as a world of peace, joy, and enlightenment
Simple meditations, prayers, and rituals to benefit the dead and dying
Advice for caregivers, helpers, and survivors of the dying
A brief liturgy and explanation of phowa, the unique Tibetan meditation for transferring the consciousness of the dying (oneself or another) to an enlightened pure land.
