《西藏生死書》是一本字字珠璣的心靈鉅著，它引導我們認識生死，直驅西藏佛教的智慧泉源。索甲仁波切深入淺出地闡釋禪修靜坐、因果叢報、轉世和臨終關懷的方法，以及心靈之路上的種種考驗和報償。西藏佛教的經典確實是現代精神論述的新典範。 《西藏生死書》是索甲仁波切自西藏中陰聞教得度經（即西藏度亡經）學習引導臨終者及亡者的特殊技巧撰寫而成的一本臨終關懷的空前巨著。 This acclaimed spiritual masterpiece is widely regarded as one of the most complete and authoritative presentations of the Tibetan Buddhist teachings ever written. A manual for life and death and a magnificent source of sacred inspiration from the heart of the Tibetan tradition, The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying provides a lucid and inspiring introduction to the practice of meditation, to the nature of mind, to karma and rebirth, to compassionate love and care for the dying, and to the trials and rewards of the spiritual path. 本書中譯版《西藏生死書》由張老師文化出版。 作者簡介 索甲仁波切(Sogyal Rinpoche) 出生於西藏，由本世紀最受尊敬的上師蔣揚欽哲仁波切養育成人。後來被上師認出是拖頓索甲（達賴十三世喇嘛的上師，也是蔣揚欽哲的上師）的轉世。 一九七一年至英國劍橋大學專研比較宗教學，一九七四年開始弘揚佛法。在歐美各國生活、教學已二十多年，使他通達西方的心靈。由於他思路清晰、從容自在、幽默風趣，傳法時深受聽講者的歡迎，成為許多國家的佛學中心與佛教團體的負責人或指導者。 他為繁複的現代世界發展出一套解說西藏佛法要義的方法，《西藏生死書》的問世，更使他獲得各國至高的尊敬與喝采。 索甲仁波切將所創設的佛學中心命名為「本覺會」（RIGPA），提供各種佛學與修練課程，並舉辦工作坊，將西藏智慧與當今議題及訓練相互結合，希望超越種族、宗教、文化與心理的障礙，直指本心，弘揚佛法。 Sogyal Rinpoche was born in Tibet and raised by one of the most revered spiritual masters of this century, Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro. With the Chinese occupation of Tibet, he went into exile with his master, who died in 1959 in Sikkim in the Himalayas. After university studies in Delhi and Cambridge, England, he acted as translator and aide to several leading Tibetan masters, and began teaching in the West in 1974. Rinpoche sees his life's task in transplanting the wisdom of Buddha to the West by offering training in the vision set out in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. This training can enable those who follow it to understand, embody, and integrate Buddhist teachings into their everyday lives. Rinpoche's reputation as an authority on the teachings associated with The Tibetan Book of the Dead and his dialogue with leading figures in the fields of psychology, science, and healing make him a sought-after speaker at international conferences and lectures. He travels extensively, teaching in Europe, North America, Australia, and Asia, and is the founder and spiritual director of Rigpa, a network of Buddhist centers and groups around the world.
