Advice on Dying And Living a Better Life
Author: Dalai Lama
Everyone dies, but no one is dead, goes the Tibetan Saying. It is with these words that Advice on Dying takes flight. Using a seventeenth-century poem written by a prominent scholar-practitioner, His Holiness the Dalai Lama draws from a wide range of traditions and beliefs to explore the stages we all go through when we die, which are the very same stages we experience in life when we go to sleep, faint, or reach orgasm (Shakespeares little death).
