Synopsis

His Holiness the Dalai Lama's teachings--a beautiful and accessible presentation of the time-honored 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 Libraey of Tibet series. Bringing us closer to the essence of Buddhist teachings, and to his own peerless insight, the Dala Lama offers his thoughts on achieving a meanful 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.
