Sleeping, Dreaming, and Dying

Sleeping, Dreaming, and Dying: An Exploration of Consciousness From the 1992 Mind and Life Conference

Sleeping, Dreaming, and Dying: An Exploration of Consciousness with the Dalai Lama
Edited by Francisco J. Varela
Wisdom Publications

For modern science, the transitional states of consciousness lie at the forefront of research in many fields. For a Buddhist practitioner these same states present crucial opportunities to explore and transform consciousness itself. This book is the account of an historic dialogue between leading Western scientists and the Dalai Lama of Tibet. Revolving around three key moments of consciousness-sleep, dreams, and death-the conversations recorded here are both engrossing and highly readable. Whether the topic is lucid dreaming, near death experiences, or the very structure of consciousness itself, the reader is continually surprised and delighted. 2 pages of color illustrations.
