The Dalai Lama’s own Tibetan Book of Living and Dying: the third volume of the Library of Tibet series on Buddhist spiritual wisdom, His Holiness the Dalai Lama offers his teachings on death and dying – and living a meaningful life.

The Dalai Lama’s gentle, accessible, and eloquently phrased teachings are one of the world’s great spiritual treasures. In this beautiful presentation of Buddhist wisdom on death and dying, he offers both his own thoughts on the end of life and the matchless insights of the Buddhist tradition regarding death. With the quiet and wise simplicity that have already won the Library of Tibet a devoted readership, the Dalai Lama combines straightforward lessons on living a good life through compassion, patience, wisdom, and effort with Buddhist teachings on the impermanence of existence, the acceptance of death, and the achievement of joy, peace, and spiritual wisdom.

Review:

‘The new Library of Tibet series affirms its own assertion that
‘Buddhist is a treasure meant for the entire world.’
Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA’S TEACHINGS – a beautiful and accessible presentation of the time honoured path to enlightenment – are one of the world’s great spiritual treasures.

'The Joy of Living and Dying in Peace' is the third volume in the landmark Library of Tibet series. Bringing us closer to the essence of Buddhist teachings, and to his own peerless insight, the Dalai Lama offers his thoughts on achieving a meaningful life and death. At the heart of his eloquent presentation is this lesson: by cultivating compassion, wisdom, and positive thought and action – in short, by living a good life – we can approach death without fear or regret, and welcome our passage and rebirth.

“My country’s culture is in danger of extinction. The Library of Tibet has been founded in order to make the treasures of Tibet available to the world. The volumes of the Library cover the entire range Tibet’s extraordinary civilisation and history, from meditation practice to social systems, from ancient times to the present day ... In so doing, it is my hope that the Library of Tibet will play an important role in helping to preserve Tibet’s endangered heritage.”
HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA
