About the Author

Born in Kham in eastern Tibet, Sogyal Rinpoche was recognized as the incarnation of Lerab Lingpa Terton Sogyal, a teacher to the thirteenth Dalai Lama, by Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro, one of the most outstanding masters of the twentieth century. Rinpoche went on to study with many other masters, of all schools. First as a translator and aide to these masters and then as a teacher in his own right, he travelled to many countries, observing the reality of people's lives and searching for a way to translate the teachings that would make them relevant to modern men and women.

Out of this was born his unique style of teaching and his ability to attune the teachings to modern life, demonstrated so vividly in this, his groundbreaking book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. Rinpoche continues to travel widely in Europe, America, Australia, and Asia, addressing thousands of people on his teaching tours and speaking at major conferences.
