As an incarnate lama, Sogyal Rinpoche was born into a culture virtually untouched by Western traditions, then went on to study at Cambridge. His grasp of both worlds makes him uniquely qualified to bring Tibetan Buddhism into our lives today. On this unmatched live audio seminar, he begins with an examination of impermanence as the very essence of existence. Yet in the West, he says, we live life as if it will go on forever. We talk about the need to "take care of ourselves." But Rinpoche asks, "Which self: the one that is going to die, or the one that will survive?" Guiding us with meticulous scholarship, Sogyal Rinpoche shares over nine hours of dharma teachings, including real life stories and traditional parables that illuminate Tibetan Buddhism's belief that, "How we live is how we will die."
