Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective is currently one of five books by author Hilgendorf, featured through the site.
Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective is a wide-ranging, profoundly liberating tapestry, weaving together Buddhist history and ideas, science, psychology, near-death experience research, and practical insights into the subject of Life and Death - all from a Buddhist perspective.
One reviewer wrote:
"If I were qualified to teach a basic college-level course in religion, philosophy, or metaphysics - call it 'Spirituality 101' - this book would be required reading. In fact, it would be the first week's assignment. Having read all or parts of nearly a thousand books dealing with spiritual matters, I cannot recall another book that so simply and effectively blends the fundamentals of religion and science." - Michael E. Tymn, Journal of Religion & Psychical Research.
James Hilgendorf not only has a connection with India through his books, which deal with Buddhist themes, but he is also the producer, along with his brother John, of The Tribute Series, a highly-acclaimed series of travel films, several of which have appeared on PBS and international television. One of his films is titled India: A Tribute, of which Booklist wrote:
"Interweaving information on religious heritage, historical figures, colonial rule, the caste system and other aspects of India, this breathtaking video tapestry hangs together beautifully."
The Tribute Series website is at: http://www.tributeseries.com.
Hilgendorf's other books are also very connected to Buddhist ideas and themes. They include "The New Superpower"; "The Buddha and the Dream of America"; "The Great New Emerging Civilization";
