Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective covers Buddhist history and ideas, science, psychology, near-death experience research, and personal experiences, combined with passages from such famous people as Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, Leo Tolstoy, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, and many others, to offer unique insights into the subject of life and death from a Buddhist perspective.
One reviewer writes:
"If I were to teach a basic college-level course in religion, philosophy, or metaphysics - call it Spriituality 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 that so simply and effectively blends the fundamentals of religion and science." - Michael E. Tymn, Journal of Religion and Psychical Research.
