    I had first listened to the audio version and was so impressed I ordered the printed text. After a slow start the essence unfolds. The Dalai Lama's treatment of impermanence is based on the First Panchen Lama's seventeen stanza poem on the process of death and rebirth. Each stanza is thoughtfully explored and summarized. A wonderful read for a person who is seeking to grow in understanding how to become more comfortable with our ultimate fate.

    This is a great gift for one who would prepare , since (as Ram Das reports seeing on a New England headstone):

    "As you are no, so once was I,
    I thought that I would never die,
    As I am now, so you will be,
    Prepare yourself to follow me,"
