The acclaimed English translation of this masterpiece of world literature - prepared with the participation of the Dalai Lama One of the greatest works created by any culture and one of the most influential of all Tibetan Buddhist texts in the West, The Tibetan Book of the Dead has had a number of distinguished translations, but strangely all of these have been partial abridgements. Now the entire text has not only been made available in English but in a translation of quite remarkable clarity and beauty. A comprehensive guide to living and dying, The Tibetan Book of the Dead contains exquisitely written guidance and practices related to transforming our experience in daily life, on the processes of dying and the after-death state, and on how to help those who are dying. As originally intended this is as much a work for the living, as it is for those who wish to think beyond a mere conventional lifetime to a vastly greater and grander cycle. 'Extraordinary ... this work will be a source of inspiration and support to many' His Holiness the Dalai Lama

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.

Hermann Karl Hesse (1877-1962), er schrieb auch unter den Pseudonym Emil Sinclair, war ein deutsch-schweizerischer Dichter, Schriftsteller und Freizeitmaler. 1895 begann Hesse eine Buchhndlerlehre in Tbingen. Ab 1895 arbeitete er in einer Buchhandlung in Tbingen. Noch als Buchhndler verffentlichte Hesse im Herbst 1898 seinen ersten kleinen Gedichtband Romantische Lieder und im Sommer 1899 die Prosasammlung Eine Stunde Hinter Mitternacht. Alsbald wurde der Roman Peter Camenzind, der 1904 regulr bei Fischer erschien, einen Durchbruch. Von nun an konnte Hesse als freier Schriftsteller leben. Beim Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges appellierte er an die deutschen Intellektuellen, nicht in nationalistische Polemik zu verfallen. 1919 bersiedelte Hesse nach Montagnola, das Hesse ber vierzig Jahre seines Lebens zur Heimstadt werden sollte. Der erfolgreichste Roman Hesses war Der Steppenwolf (1927). Ihm wurden unter anderem 1946 der Nobelpreis fr Literatur und 1955 die Friedensklasse des Ordens Pour le Mrite verliehen. Zu Hesses bekanntesten Werke gehren: Unterm Rad (1906), Demian (1919), Siddhartha (1922), Narzi und Goldmund (1930) und Das Glasperlenspiel (1943).

In the latter half of the 1950s a series of unusual events that started with a UFO encounter, continued with a near-death experience, and ended with unusual transformations of consciousness started me on a journey to Tibetan Buddhism. Several decades passed before I began to suspect that the Tibetan legend of Shambhala might tie these disparate events together. This book is the result.
