Advice On Dying: And Living a Better Life

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Narrated By: Jeffrey Hopkins

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: November 2002

Duration: 5 hours 30 minutes


'Everyone dies, but no one is dead,' goes the Tibetan saying. It is with these words that Advice on Dying takes flight. Using a seventeenth- century poem written by a prominent scholar-practitioner, His Holiness the Dalai Lama draws from a wide range of traditions and beliefs to explore the stages we all go through when we die, which are the very same stages we experience in fife when we go to sleep, faint, or reach orgasm (Shakespeare's 'little death').
The stages are described so vividly that we can imagine the process of traveling deeper into the mind, on the ultimate journey of transformation. In this way, His Holiness shows us how to prepare for that time and, in doing so, how to enrich our time on earth, die without fear or upset, and influence the stage between this life and the next so that we may gain the best possible incarnation. As always, the ultimate goal is to advance along the path to enlightenment. Advice on Dying is an essential tool for attaining that eternal bliss.

    Very difficult to follow......if you day-dreamed for a minute you may as well start the chapter over again. I usually love the Dalai Lama's books....not this one!
