However, the latter part of the book in my opinion got bogged down in mysticism and myth and was a lot less interesting.

Therefore, the book was okay for some simple wisdom and inspirational advice but it's a chore to keep yourself motivated all the way thru. Mar 21, Myridian rated it did not like it Shelves: nonfiction , psychology , buddhism. What a disappointment.
This book basically spouts religious doctrine for pgs. I had always thought that Buddhism was a less reward focused religion, but this book seriously damaged that hypothesis. The whole book is basically focused on how to achieve a positive reincarnation. It even goes so far as to say that one can chea What a disappointment. It even goes so far as to say that one can cheat one's life-long karma as long as one's practice at the time of death is strong enough which is unfair in addition to being reward driven.
I guess the underlying message was that one wants to achieve a positive reincarnation in order to achieve Buddha-hood and benefit society, but still it seemed a very mercenary reason. The other problem with the book is that it approaches the poem uncritically. I had seriuos difficulty with accepting the very technical description of death as valid and ketp wondering how given that everyone experiencing those things dies anyone knows.
That issue was never addressed. Feb 26, J. First was a long introduction about Chinese and Tibetan governments pretending to be the authority over which magical child is the latest incarnation of whoever -- a subject I would have a hard time taking seriously without personally going to Tibet and having to pass a series of trials to win the Ajanti Dagger. The other half was surprisingly basic, and weak, I thought, for being addressed to a one-dimensional, straw man audience, with passages that resembled, "You cause pain because you chase after wealth and enjoy suing people with lawyers and seeking power in the world.
It must get more in depth in later chapters, but I also stopped because, unsurprisingly, the language and context stayed strictly within the realm of the religion, and the recommendations that did come spoke of leaving the world for a solitary, ascetic life. I believe that can be a useful path for some people, but I don't believe it is the path, and the condescension to other, 'lesser' options seemed short sighted at best. May 09, Sarahkbolton rated it it was amazing. Feeling that death is almost impossible just creates more greediness and more trouble - sometimes even deliberate harm to others.
When we take a good look at how supposedly great personages - emperors, monarchs, and so forth - built huge dwelling places and walls, we see that deep inside their minds was an idea that they would stay in this life forever. This self-deception results in more pain and more tro "To make life meaningful, acceptance of old age and death as parts of our life is crucial.

This self-deception results in more pain and more trouble for many people. If situations did not change, they would forever retain the nature of suffering. Once you know things are always changing, even if you are passing through a very difficult period, you can find comfort in knowing that the situation will not remain that way forever. So, there is not need for frustration. Dec 20, Daniel Vladimiro rated it really liked it.

So, it's a delight to know this knowledge , despite the fact, that I don't think I can die this way A very beautiful book.
