Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying - Sogyal Rinpoche


Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying - Sogyal Rinpoche

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. With the Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying app, 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. Highlights include: - What survives death: how to discern and cultivate it - The mystery of life’s last moment - The ancient bardo teachings and how to apply them to everyday challenges - How to develop the practice of rigpa (seeing clearly) - How to create a peaceful death—for yourself and others 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, the Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying app is both a guide to this inner technology and a sacred document for listeners of all faiths and traditions. The Tibetan Wisdom for Living and Dying app features: - A nine-hour course on core Buddhist teachings that invite us to face death without fear (9 hours, 14 minutes of audio) - A Good Minute—video selections that offer concentrated wisdom to inspire you anytime - A relaxing slide show - An interactive vine garden to enjoy while listening (iPad only) - Bookmarking to help you easily find your favorite content About the Author Sogyal Rinpoche was born in Tibet and trained by several revered masters of traditional Tibetan Buddhism.
