The Tibetan Book of the Dead for Beginners By Lama Lhanang Rinpoche, Mordy Levine AudioBook Summary
Enduring and accessible advice for living with wisdom and compassion―and meeting the end of life with courage and peace
Through countless editions and across centuries, The Tibetan Book of the Dead has drawn people intrigued by the Tibetan Buddhist view of the end of life. In a world that often ignores death or hides it from view, Tibetan Buddhists acknowledge it as the last of a countless series of endings in this lifetime. And after each ending comes a new beginning. The Tibetan Book of the Dead for Beginners draws on this timeless wisdom to help listeners today live with more joy and approach the end with more ease.
Lama Lhanang Rinpoche, born and raised in Tibet and now teaching in the United States and internationally, partners with student and meditation teacher Mordy Levine to share teachings inspired by The Tibetan Book of the Dead. They make clear that “how we live is how we will die.” The book explores karma, impermanence, the bardos (or the “in-between”), and what happens next, sharing accessible practices to cultivate wisdom and compassion along the way. With empathy and warmth, Lama Lhanang and Levine offer support for listeners grappling with their own mortality and those caring for loved ones transitioning from this lifetime.
