Book Summary of Advice on Dying: And Living a Better Life

Now available in paperback, this powerful book from His Holiness the Dalai Lama teaches us how investigating death also greatly benefits our perspective on life
In this ground-breaking book, the Dalai Lama advises us to gain familiarity with the process and practices of death so that, when we are physically weak, our minds can still be focussed in the right direction, and in the right manner. Advice on Dying cautions us not to fall under the influence of the mistaken belief of permanence. We should not think that we have a lot of time in this life, because there is a great danger of wasting our lives in procrastination. He suggests we meditate on our lives, and on the indefiniteness of the time of death. For, though the time of our death is uncertain, death itself is certain... In this empowering and positive book, His Holiness brings new inspiration to a subject that we, in the West, have long ignored to our detriment. It is only by taming our minds and fully facing the end of our lives, that we can fully live in the present moment.

About the Author
His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama was born on 6 July 1935 to a peasant family in the small village of Takster in northeastern Tibet and was recognised at the age of two as the reincarnation of his predecessor, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama. Nobel Laureate and bestselling author, he is regarded as the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. Unlike his predecessors who never came to the West, His Holiness continues his worldwide travels, eloquently speaking in favour of ecumenical understanding, kindness and compassion, respect for the environment and, above all, world peace.

Justin December 26, 2010 review from Goodreads

Accepting death and meditating on impermanence are among the cornerstones of Buddhist teachings. The Tibetan Buddhist tradition especially has for centuries almost made a science of contemplating, observing, and describing the subtleties involved in the process of dying and the afterlife. Of equa...

Sarahkbolton May 09, 2010 review from Goodreads

"To make life meaningful, acceptance of old age and death as parts of our life is crucial. Feeling that death is almost impossible just creates more greediness and more trouble - sometimes even deliberate harm to others. When we take a good look at how supposedly great personages - emperors, mona...

Libby April 28, 2009 review from Goodreads

It will be interesting when I come to die to see if dying happens in the stages outlined here. I tend to believe that there is no one way of doing anything, life and death are full of myriads of possibilities and are not limited to one way and one way only. I wonder if you study Tibetan Buddhism...

Julie at All Ears September 23, 2011 review from Goodreads

I selected this book after losing both my father and my mother-in-law just a day apart this past summer. I had hoped that the experience would be similar to someone seeking the truth from a hermit living high up in the mountains. What is the purpose of life? And why do people have to die? Who bet...

Myridian March 21, 2008 review from Goodreads

What a disappointment. This book was an annotated recitation of the First Panchen Lama's poem, Wishes for Release from the Perilous Straits of the Intermediate State, Hero Releasing from Fight. This book basically spouts religious doctrine for 237 pgs. I had always thought that Buddhism was a les...
