Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully

The Profound Practice of Transference of Conciousness

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

"There is nothing more precious than our human life. Having been born as a human being we have immense freedom to accomplish almost anything we want. With so much freedom, we need to ask ourself what is the most meaningful way to use our life. What will make us truly happy? What will benefit others most? And when this life is over, what will help us then?"

- Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

An Invaluable Resource

During a period of serious ill health this book proved to be an invaluable resource during a very traumatic time in my life. I'd heartily recommend this book to anyone who is seeking help with mortality related issues.

- Review from Tharpa's website

Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully provides inspiring guidelines for helping us to live a happy and meaningful life, come to terms with our own death in a positive way and help others who are dying.

We are alive, therefore we will die.

This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence, yet very few of us have really come to terms with this fact.

This inspiring book helps us to make the most of our human life, to prepare for death and to help others who are dying.

In this way, instead of something to be feared or denied, death can become a positive experience.
