Overview

With an introductory commentary by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Meditations on Living, Dying, and Loss is a compilation of essential writings from the first complete translation of The Tibetan Book of the Dead, whose visionary perspective on living, dying, and loss is one of the most inspirational in world literature.
