Book Recommendation

Post by cjdevries »

I highly recommend the book Deathing by Anya Foos Graber. It's designed to train your mind and body for death. It provides useful exercises for working with death. It's very compatible with Buddhism; she talks about Guru Yoga and how to shoot your consciousness out the top of the head. https://www.amazon.com/Deathing-Intelli ... 0892540168

Tulku Thondup wrote a very helpful book - Peaceful Death, Joyful Rebirth:

Here's another recommendation. When I went to hear the Dalai Lama's physician speak, I had the opportunity to ask him a question about death and he said the best advice he could give was to read "How to See Yourself As you Really Are" by HH the Dalai Lama. He said that once you understand who you really are, your relationship to death will change.
