The psychological principles in this book are great but the reincarnation parts are quite silly. I'm sorry, I found the different voices to jar with each other. Also, if reading well is a challenge, don't record an Audio book.
I found this book an interesting listen especially the parts discussing the afterlife. I would recommend this book for anyone going through the loss of a loved one or anybody interested in the Tibetan Buddhist views of the afterlife. This is a book that I consider a life changing braking point, it guided me trough the death process of my son and is now guiding me through many aspects of my life.
At the time I bought a hard copy, and I'm enjoying listening to it. This is a must read in this life. I thank Sagoyal for his great compassionate efforts to teach this knowledge.
The audio of this recording y s very good. This is a "preaching to the choir" kind of book.
I'm sure it's good if you're really into buddhist teachings. I however who are only casually interrested found this boring.
Kind of like litsening to christians talking about the grace of god. Just a heads up. Heard a lot of great things about the book, and was highly disappointed to hear the narration.
The really annoying thing was that the sample narrator which is great didn't read the rest of the book.. It seems to be mostly about helping people who are dying, and does not offer a lot of insight in to how to deal with everyday life and the difficulties of dealing with ego, which is the main source of suffering.
Would you ever listen to anything by Sogyal Rinpoche again? Maybe, what makes me hesitant is that I found out he rapes his female students, or at least uses his position as a master to have sex with him. Several times he was summoned to court for this. This shows that he is apparently not capable of being a good master and that makes his teachings less pure I would think.
How does this one compare? I liked the performance. Any additional comments? A beautiful book to listen to, as well as read. I read this book a while ago and felt a shift within myself, and in listening to this book, it was there again - I can recommend it to anyone who is looking for a deeper understanding to how this powerful illusion is working and who desires to live without FEAR.
So much content. Another great lists. I loved the performance reading.
This is a wonderful book, and I have read it many times as a text. I thought I would try the audiobook as it is narrated by the author, and John Cleese. I think it would be helpful if audible highlighted more clearly that this is abridged, and so is not the full text.
Having said that it was definitely worth the credits. The picture of the front page is identical to the printed version though I find it quite confusing and you should explain this to potential downloaders.
Otherwise the text is interesting, I do like it but again - am not sure what I bought. This book is for all,with an open mind looking for pathways to a meaningful existance. Which character — as performed by the narrators — was your favourite? Did you have an emotional reaction to this book?
Did it make you laugh or cry? This is the single most useful gift I was ever given. I rate it purely on the sections read by Soygal Rinpoche whose voice seems to resonate with the peace and compassion he is teaching.
Some of the other sections can feel a bit long but all contain useful advice for living and dying. It has changed my life. Even if it doesn't change yours it's worth it just to hear John Cleese being serious.
Great book material should be delivered in schools especially to medical students.
I highly recommended it! Comprehend the metaphysical mechanics of the cosmos as illuminated by Tibetan wisdom and awaken into the Clear Light. I liked this book. And I enjoyed hearing it.
It speaks about many aspects of Buddhism. Amongst many other areas, it mentions the relationship between the master and the disciple, and how important this is. And the Buddhist view of sex is clear, as part of the craving for sense pleasures. And one would normally expect a teacher to practice what they teach? So google Sogyal Rinpoche, and the various sex scandals which have been reported.
And decide for yourself if you wish to hear this book. Would you try another book written by Sogyal Rinpoche or narrated by the narrators? What could Sogyal Rinpoche have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Paid me to listen to it. How could the performance have been better? Read it to real people to gauge their reactions. All of the nonsense. I was interested in the philosophical concepts involved from an academic viewpoint.
What I got was a nutty load of nonsense preaching. Sogyal Rinpoche. Narrated by: Nam id enim sapien. Nam interdum justo eget nisi pulvinar et condimentum orci bibendum. Integer elementum tempor libero sit amet iaculis. Donec scelerisque, urna id tincidunt ultrices, nisi nisl lacinia mi, at pellentesque enim mi eu felis. Nullam malesuada egestas tincidunt. Pellentesque nec risus dui. Fusce sed nibh eu odio posuere semper.
What other book might you compare Liberation Upon Hearing in the Between to and why? This generic question needs to read the question and look at this book. The title should give you a clue. But I will say that even Sogyal Rinpoche's Tibetan book of Living and Dying is the only book in the ball park for any sort of comparison.
This translation and most especially Bob Thurman's delivery is quintessentially American. Yes , Bob is a real American Buddhist teacher amongst a growing handful. How does this one compare? I have listened to Bob Thurman before. First at the San Francisco Zen Center. He is a delight.
