Living in the Light of Death: On the Art of Being Truly Alive -- by Larry Rosenberg with David Guy


 
"Living in the Light of Death is an invaluable primer for virtually anyone who has a body and is old enough to read. Larry Rosenberg dives right to the core of what it takes to be truly alive and, with the lightest and kindest of touches, show us simple ways to wake up to our lives while we have them to live. A true vehicle for exploring the profound question of whether there is life before death."--Jon Kabat-Zinn

Growing older, getting sick, and dying are tough subjects we usually like to avoid -- even if we've admitted to ourselves that they're inevitable.

The Buddhist practice of maranasati, or death awareness, helps us to confront these hard realities head-on, as a particularly powerful means of liberating ourselves from the attachments that cause us to suffer.

This book is the fruit of Larry Rosenberg's years of practicing and teaching death awareness. Using a text known as the Five Subjects for Frequent Recollection, he shows how intimacy with aging and mortality can be a means to liberation: when we become intimate with death, we also become profoundly intimate with ourselves, with others, indeed with all things.

Larry Rosenberg is founder and resident teacher of the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center in Cambridge, Massachussetts, and a guiding teacher at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachussetts.
