A Life of Happiness: A Practice Guide for Older Practitioners is the first Buddhist practice guide intended for older people. Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche is a highly regarded lama with many students and centres worldwide. He has dedicated his life to serving the Dharma and is one of the most revered teachers in the Karma Kagyu. Rinpoche draws on his own personal experiences of the problems encountered with ageing, declining health and end of life to give advice on the Dharma practices they should follow, the attitudes they should adopt, and the actions they should take. He includes advice to family members and care-givers and instructions about what they should do when someone dies. The methods of practice that Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche explains here are easy to understand, yet extremely important and pithy. Rinpoche’s lifetime of pure and genuine practice is distilled into concise words of advice; each word and sentence conveys Rinpoche’s warm wishes and deep blessings.
The book is based on a series of interviews with Thrangu Rinpoche, conducted in Tibetan and translated into Chinese by Ani Jangchup Drolma. That translation, edited by Khenpo Lodro Tengye, was published by Thrangu Dharmakara in Hong Kong, which continues to offer a printed edition. This beautifully illustrated English edition, translated by Jamyang Woser, edited by Jo Gibson and Khenpo David Karma Choephel is now offered for free by Dharma Ebooks with the hope that it will benefit people, so in old age they can live a full life of happiness.
