What They Are Saying

Over the next few months, The Tibetan Blog of Living and Dying will be featuring articles, quotes and interviews from well-known individuals about the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying and it’s impact over the last 20 years. We also want to keep sharing all of your stories about the book, so please keep sending them in!

To kick this off, here’s what Helen Tworkov, founder of the Buddhist magazine Tricycle: The Buddhist Review, said:

“This book was not only way ahead of the curve 20 years ago, but paradoxically–or ironically–was written with much less self-conscious consideration to the Western reader than so many of the more recent books, yet  with much more effective consequences, and lasting benefits.”
