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

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS 421I am deeply grateful to Dudjom Rinpoche's family: his wife,Sangyum Kusho Rikzin Wangmo, for her kindness and understanding,and his son and daughters, Shenphen Rinpoche,Chime Wangmo, and Tsering Penzom, for their constant support.For their warm and generous help, I would like to thanktoo both Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, whose work has inspiredparts of this book, and Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche, whohas been so instrumental in bringing the teachings and thegreatest teachers to the West.Among the younger generation of masters, I must singleout Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, the "activity emanation"of my master Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö. Thebrilliance and freshness of his teaching continue to fascinateme and fill me with great hope for the future. Likewise Ishould like to thank, for his wonderful and spontaneous help,Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche, who is the heir to Dilgo KhyentseRinpoche, and who received teachings from him continuouslyfrom the age of five.I am always moved and encouraged too by a master whois very close to my heart, whose work and mine are one:Dzogchen Rinpoche. Having now reconstructed the famousDzogchen Monastery with immense vitality in southern India,he has already taken on, in his learning and the dazzlingpurity and natural simplicity of his presence, the bearing of thegreat master he will be in the future.A number of masters have answered in detail certain specificquestions about the teachings presented in this book:His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche,Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche, Trulshik Rinpoche, DzongsarKhyentse Rinpoche, Lati Rinpoche, and Alak Zenkar Rinpoche.To them I am deeply grateful. I would like to express my gratitudeas well to Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, for his friendship overthe years, his kind and constant help to both my students andmyself, and his wonderful translation work, which includesthe translation of this book into Tibetan.I wish to thank and salute the pioneers of the Buddhistteachings, those masters of different traditions whose workhas for decades brought help to so many people in the West. Ithink especially of Suzuki Roshi, Chögyam Trungpa, TarthangTulku, and Thich Nhat Hanh.I would like also to thank my mother and my late fatherfor their support, and all the help they have given me toaccomplish what I have done so far: my late father, Tsewang
