"This is the most significant work in English on the six bardos since the publication of transcripts of two seminars given many years ago by my guru Ch gyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Now once again these wonderful teachings are illuminated by the deep wisdom and compassion of a genuine master."--Francesca Fremantle, author of Luminous Emptiness: A Guide to the Tibetan Book of the Dead "Mind Beyond Death goes a long way toward demystifying these teachings about the transition between one life and another and making them relevant to everyday life. The way to meet death fully, says Ponlop Rinpoche, is to die every day to every moment to everything. To our thoughts to our agony to our emotions to our loving relationships--even to our joy. At forty-one, Ponlop Rinpoche, who makes his home in Seattle, is at the forefront of a new generation of traditionally trained Tibetan Buddhist scholar-teachers. You're sure to hear more from him in the future."--Shambhala Sun
