    DEATH AND DYING IN THE TIBETAN BUDDHIST TRADITION Compiled by: Ven. Pende Hawter. Contemplation and meditation on death and impermanence are regarded as very important in Buddhism for two reasons: (1) it is only by recognising how precious and how short life is that we are most likely to make it meaningful and to live it fully and (2) by understanding the death process and familiarizing. the centuries. Someone once called this book "midway between a living master and a book," and it is true that both in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying and behind it, support­ ing it with their advice and answers to questions, are the greatest masters of our time. It is their voice that speaks.

    Tibetan Transitions uses the dual lenses of anthropology and demography to analyze population regulating mechanisms in traditional Tibetan societies, and to link recent fertility transitions with family systems, economic strategies, gender equity, and family planning ideologies. The overall aim of Tibetan astrology and astronomy, like modern sciences is to understand the cosmos, how it operates and how we can benefit from its forces and transitions, in order to live in union with the constant changes and movements of which we are an intergral part.
