We are alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence, and yet very few of us have really come to terms with it. This book seeks to give a Buddhist insight into death and dying, helping us to develop an awareness of our own morality.

This inspiring book gives an unparalleled Buddhist insight into death and dying, helping us to develop an awareness of our own mortality in a way that will totally enrich and transform our human life. It includes also accessible and practical instructions on how to increase all our positive states of mind, such as love, compassion, and wisdom. It makes you aware with: How to make the most of our human life; understanding what happens when we die; and learning to face our own death without fear. In particular, Geshe Kelsang explains a very powerful yet simple practice called 'transference of consciousness'. Mastery of this will enable us to meet our death with grace, clarity, and fearlessness, attain rebirth in a Pure Land, and experience happiness in all our future lives.

Reviews: 

"The book is illustrated and very useful for anyone desirous of getting acquainted with some important tenets of Buddhism and a few specialised practices. Appendices, Glossary, Bibliography and Index make it useful and easy to refer to." - Vedic Astrology

"An objective analysis of the Tibetan people clearly shows that they know about the process of death and what happens afterwards. They have it down to a "mind-science." Only a fool would not study this book if he had the opportunity. Because we can bank on one thing. Death is getting closer to us by the very second. It's a frightening and horrible thought, I know. But still it remains... And when I finish this review, I will be closer to death. So what do we do? ... If we are evil, we can think pragmatically about cheating God. The Tibetans believe in "powa", a technique of transferring one's conciousness into a pure land. A pure land is like heaven. Once there, we can choose our rebirth. We can choose our parents. Our family. Our place of human rebirth. If we want a human rebirth. So there are an infinite number of possiblities once we reach a pure land. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso gives us instructions on how to do this. "Powa" is "transference of counciousness." And most of you badly need this book! I badly need this book! I have this book. Buy this book! The last half teaches us in the training of virtue. It is assumed that we want to make our transition in death easier. But what is really incredible is Gyatso's precise description of the death process and what happens afterwards. It's a map. Gyatso is the best writer of Buddhism in the twentieth century. He is simply a great man who has survived false accusations from the henchmen of the Dali Lama. This book will make you steady and straight. You might find the visualiztion of powa extremely difficult at first. When ordering this book, also order "The Medition Handbook" and "Joyful Path to Good Fortune" by the same author. Just do it. Just go ahead and do it." - The Editorial Review
