Sogyal Rinpoche

In his book on, “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying”, Sogyal Rinpoche states that, “Caring for the dying makes you poignantly aware not only of their mortality, but also of your own.” He continues, “So many veils and illusions separate us from the stark knowledge that we are dying; when we finally know that we are dying and all other sentient beings are dying with us…from this can grow a deep, clear, limitless compassion for all beings”. Nouwen, Frankl and Rinpoche agree that living with an awareness of death leads to compassion. Do you agree?
