This book is an interesting introduction for studying death from the buddhist perspective. I radically applied it to trying to apply, understanding the law of impermanence, to my life.

"I guess what disappoints me the most about this book is its wasted potential. Anyen Rinpoche could have offered a non-denominational book for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike that could have been helpful, but instead he fell too deeply into the ritual, almost-dogmatic practices of the organized religion of Vajrayana Buddhism." -- (more of this review in the Book Reports section at www.philduncanwrites.com

Odd that someone could consider this phenomenal book lacking because it focused on Tibetan Buddhism. It is, after all, in the title. Of the several books available in English on the topic, this is by far the most comprehensive. The advice on Powhatan groups and dharma wills is invaluable.

This book will change your whole view of why we practice Tibetan Buddhism. A lucid guide to preparing for the most important event that will ever happen to us.

Some good information and suggestions from a tradional Tibetan Buddhist viewpoint, but rather dry reading.
