There’s More to Dying Than Death
The Buddha taught how to let go of fear and self-clinging, be alone well, and train ourselves to encounter suffering without alienation or anxiety. There’s More to Dying Than Death draws on the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of positively preparing for death throughout one’s life. Lama Shenpen Hookham offers Westerners like herself a warm, readable and heartfelt exposition on the issues that surround death and caring for the dying. Some of the chapters include How meditation helps us understand death, the stages of death and rebirth, how the living can help the dead or dying & practical planning for one’s own death. There’s More to Dying Than Death is of great interest to anyone seeking a spiritual perspective on death and a deeper experience of being truly alive.
