Death and Rebirth
Good Life, Good Death -- by Gehlek Rinpoche
Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How do we get there? Many have asked these questions, and many have attempted to answer them. But there is another question
Good Life, Good Death
asks us to contemplate: how does the idea of life after death affect how we live our lives? Gehlek Rimpoche tells stories of the mystical Tibet he lived in, as well as the contemporary America he is now a citizen of, and shares the wisdom of the great masters. He asks us to open our minds and see if we can entertain a bigger picture of life after life, even for a moment. He makes the connection between powerful emotions such as anger, obsession, jealousy and pride, and our past as well as our future.
”Gehlek Rimpoche was brought up in one of the most upper-crust families in Tibet, belonging to the family of the Great Thirteenth Dalai Lama. At an early age, he had to leave his comfortable and stimulating home for the relatively harsh life of the formal training of an incarnate lama. As a novice monk, he underwent a rigorous intellectual, spiritual, and moral education. He excelled in all his studies and practices and graduated in record time. In 1959, Rimpoche’s world was shattered when the Communist Chinese invaded Tibet. After many adventures of escape, he entered a new phase of his education, learning about the larger world, about Indians and Westerners, about Hindus and Christians and Jews, and secular humanists and atheists. He became a man of the world – though he maintained his Buddhist practices.” – from the Introduction by Robert Thurman.
