    1. Good Life, Good Death is written from the perspective of a Tibetan monk who lost his country after Communist China took over Through personal experiences and ancient stories he demonstrates how negative emotions hatred, jealousy, attachment impact daily life and your ability to reincarnate.There were quite a few things I enjoyed about this book Primarily, it doesn t try to sell reincarnation, but simply offers the idea and some reasoning behind it using personal experiences and stories Gehlek ac [...]

    3. We make it a point to go hear Rimpoche whenever he is in Lincoln, every year or so Happened to be here about three weeks after I left my last job with much public attention and he gave me much comfort and perspective.This is on the Reread At Will bookshelf in my room Although much of this is autobiographical, there is much to think about here and well worth the time.


    4. Simply a must have book for understanding death and living a better life Gelek Rimpoche has the ability to take obscure Tibetan Buddisht concepts and make the very easy to understand for Westerners This is truly a must have and must read book.





    5. Just finished this book and I am glad to have read it Was going through my father s studio and just picked it up and started reading I appreciated the very human, day to day approach of living compassionately and fully So many good reminders of how to be in the world Interestingly, I found myself no wanting to be a Bhuddist than I would want to be a follower of any other religion there is something intrinsically flawed when an elightened being s experience gets translated to a broader audience [...]


    6. Gehlek accomplishes his purpose of explaining Tibetan Buddhist ideas about living an dying to Westerners in their own terms Though much of the material was not new to me, the delivery was fresh and deepened my understanding of how to prepare for a good death Some of the members of my Sangha have formulated a Dying to Live group Among other things, we are preparing to offer a workshop in our community related to completing end of life documents Gehlek s book is one of many that landed on the read [...]


    7. I am fascinated by Buddhism and even interested in the idea of reincarnation Rimpoche Gehlek delivers an comprehensive and fascinating look at the concepts behind living a life without suffering It is not a book that intends to convert or preach about the greatness of Buddhism over other beliefs, but rather presents information and ideas from one man s perspective The fact that he is a revered teacher and lama in Tibet and the US doesn t hurt


    8. Gelek Rimpoche grew up in Tibet and spent his entire early life in a monastery He is one of the last generation of the great Monks of Tibet before the Chinese came He had the same teachers as the Dalai Lama and His Holiness asked Rimpoche to come to America to teach the Dharma Rimpoche loves America and our culture and makes the Dharma easy to understand for Westerners.


    9. I liked the simple, strait forward approach of this book The concepts presented easy to understand It was offered in such a way that belief was not required only an open mind to another way of thinking Worth a look.






    10. A very down to earth account of Tibetan Buddhist teachings about death and reincarnation It made me want to learn .


    11. This is a book I need to reread because there is so much information that it is hard to take in on the first reading.


    12. I loved this book It gives a unique perspective on how to live a good life I really enjoyed all the different examples and the mantras at the end.


    13. This book is great as a guide to daily practice, but for off the cushion than on It s in the vein of Lojong Lamrim, or Mind Training Wonderful.
