Description - Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
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 inspiring book gives an unparalleled Buddhist insight into death and dying, helping us develop an awareness of our own mortality in a way that will totally enrich and transform our human life. Also included are accessible and practical instructions on how to increase all our positive states of mind, such as love, compassion, and wisdom. 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.
