Translation by Wendy Yiu

A book is like a friend. We understand the world and life, or even observe ourselves through texts, and have a deep realization of oneself that we are not alone. PMQ invites different people from design and culture sectors to recommend a book, so that you can enrich yourselves as book therapy.

Why would you recommend this book?

Tsang Tsui Shan: I always feel it's not a right time to start "The Tibetan Book of Living and dying" and the theme of death is a profound subject to explore. Until the global epidemic struck early this year, deaths and separations hit the world. I think it's time reading it. However, I realize the life I have been pursuing in the past years is illustrated black and white in this book about death.

"The Tibetan Book of Living and dying"

Author: Sogyal Rinpoche

The book is like a lecture on death that allows us to learn how to face death and also to live well in every moment. There have been many changes in Hong Kong in the past year. Most of us may have been living in sorrow. I hope you all can take time to read "The Tibetan Book of Living and dying", learn to live in the present, and not to be afraid of embracing the future and unknown.
