In this empowering and positive book, His Holiness cautions us not to waste our lives in procrastination. Our death is certain. By meditating on impermanence, and on the indefiniteness of the time of our death, we will bring vigour and sparkle into our everyday world - and also prepare ourselves for the inevitable, and crucially important, moment of dying.
With wise guidance and spiritual vision, the Dalai Lama offers new inspiration on a subject that we, in the West, have long ignored to our detriment. It is only by taming our minds and fully facing the end of our lives, that we can fully live in the present moment.
