The third in the popular Library of Tibet series, this book address the universal questions of how we can achieve meaningful lives and peaceful deaths.

From the Back Cover:

'TOMORROW OR THE NEXT LIFE, YOU NEVER KNOW WHICH WILL COME FIRST.'

Bringing us closer to the essence of the Buddhist teachings, and to his own peerless insight, His Holiness the Dalai Lama offers his thoughts on achieving a meaningful life and peaceful death. At the heart of his eloquent presentation is this lesson: by cultivating compassion, wisdom and positive thought in action – in short, by living a good life – we can approach death without fear or regret, and welcome our passage and rebirth. Offering gentle direction to further illuminate that path, His Holiness provides straightforward practices and traditional Buddhist teachings on embracing our gift of human potential, on the acceptance of death and impermanence, and on the achievement of joy, peace and spiritual fulfilment in this lifetime.

'The Joy of Living and Dying in Peace' is the third volume in the landmark Library of Tibet series, which was founded to preserve and disseminate the cultural heritage of Tibet. The volumes of the Library will cover Tibetan history and culture, from meditation practices to social history. Volume Editor Donald S. Lopez is Professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies at the University of Michigan. John F. Avedon, General Series Editor of the Library, is the author of 'In Exile from the Land of Snows', the definitive history of modern Tibet.

About the Author:

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the exiled spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet. As an advocate for peace he has won recognition the world over. In 1989 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He lectures internationally and is the subject of two forthcoming Hollywood feature films (Seven Years in Tibet starring Brad Pitt and Kundun directed by Martin Scorcese). Both films will be released in the UK in Winter/Spring 98.
