The publication of 'The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying' by Sogyal Rinpoche opened a window into the living Buddhist tradition of Tibet, revealing to a reading public of millions the practical wisdom it has to offer the modern world. Its wise and compassionate approach to death and dying led to the book being adopted by colleges, groups and institutions, both medical and religious.
Twenty-five years later, 'The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying' continues to offer a wealth of advice that people of any religion or of none can enrich their lives with. This short course takes participants on an experiential journey through the book, giving a taste of the major themes and their implications. It encourages you to reflect on them, to see what makes sense to you and what you would want to bring into your life. You also get to explore simple practices of meditation, compassion, and contemplation.
This nine week course starts Thursday 6 February, 7:00pm-9:00pm at Rigpa Sydney, Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Centre, 158 Australia St, Newtown.
