Publisher's Summary

Great book, life changing brakin gpoint.

This is a book that I consider a life changing braking point, it guided me trough the death process of my son and is now guiding me through many aspects of my life. At the time I bought a hard copy, and I'm enjoying listening to it. This is a must read in this life. I thank Sagoyal for his great compassionate efforts to teach this knowledge.

Not very helpfull for everyday life

What disappointed you about The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying?

It seems to be mostly about helping people who are dying, and does not offer a lot of insight in to how to deal with everyday life and the difficulties of dealing with ego, which is the main source of suffering.


Would you ever listen to anything by Sogyal Rinpoche again?

Maybe, what makes me hesitant is that I found out he rapes his female students, or at least uses his position as a master to have sex with him. Several times he was summoned to court for this. This shows that he is apparently not capable of being a good master and that makes his teachings less pure I would think.


Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I liked the performance.


What character would you cut from The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying?

none, it's not applicable.


Any additional comments?

If you look for enlightenment, any book from Deepak Chopra, Byron Katie, Eckhart tolle or the Dalay Lama will do better.
