The-Tibetan-Book-of-Living-and-Dying

xivINTRODUCTIONhas not become any less urgent these ten years on. Whatwould it mean if more and more people thought seriouslyabout their future and the future of the world? Imagine howthings would be if we could live our lives infusing them witha sacred meaning; if our end-of-life care were always lit by asense of awe in the face of death; and if we looked on lifeand death themselves as an inseparable whole. What wouldbe the effect of seeking to make love and compassion themeasure of our every action, and of understanding, to anydegree, the inmost nature of the mind that underlies our entireexistence? This would be a true revolution, one that wouldfree men and women to discover their birthright, that innerdimension so long neglected, and unite them with the fullnessof the human experience in all its mystery and grandeur.Sogyal RinpocheLerab Ling, FranceNovember 2001
