Death is universal and inevitable. Sooner or later, it comes to all of us. As Buddhists, we are taught that the experience of dying contains the seeds of great personal transformation. But let's face it: It’s also tough. Tricycle Teachings: Dying & Death offers compassion and insight for anyone seeking to explore the Buddhist approach to one of life’s greatest mysteries.
