'I couldn't give this book a higher recommendation' BILLY CONNOLLY
Written by the Buddhist meditation master and popular international speaker Sogyal Rinpoche, this highly acclaimed book clarifies the majestic vision of life and death that underlies the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. It includes not only a lucid, inspiring and complete introduction to the practice of meditation, but also advice on how to care for the dying with love and compassion, and how to bring them help of a spiritual kind. But there is much more besides in this classic work, which was written to inspire all who read it to begin the journey to enlightenment and so become 'servants of peace'.
“If you believe books can change lives, earmark this one”
“You don't have to be a Buddhist to read it: its mastery lies in the lucid way it presents esoteric ideas”
