Der tibetische Meditationsmeister Sogyal Rinpoche führt uns an eine Lebenspraxis heran, durch die der Tod seinen Schrecken verliert und der Alltag an Freude gewinnt. Seine zeitgemäße Auslegung der buddhistischen Lehren des berühmten »Tibetischen Totenbuchs« hat weltweit einen maßgeblichen Rang erlangt. Sie ist zu einer unentbehrlichen Hilfe in der Krankenbetreuung und Sterbebegleitung geworden. Doch jeder Mensch kann durch dieses Buch nicht nur »die Kunst zu sterben«, sondern auch die »zu leben« lernen. Beide sind nach tibetischer Auffassung nur die zwei Seiten einer Medaille.
