REVIEWS MAN OF PEACE The Illustrated Life Story of the Dalai Lama of Tibet By William Meyers, Robert Thurman, and Michael G. Burbank. Art by Steve Buccellato, Donald Hudson, Kunsun Loh, Miranda Meeks and Audrey Pervukhin. Tibet House US, 2016; 289 pp., $39.95 (paper) Why a graphic novel about the well- documented life of the Dalai Lama? Because, in the view of the authors of Man of Peace, there are things that dry biographical facts alone can’t convey. So in places they have invoked artistic license, bolstering known scenes with imagined dialogue and action to tell a real-life David-versus-Goliath story: six million scattered Tibetans and their exiled leader facing an authoritarian empire of 1.3-billion peo- ple intent on obliterating their sovereignty, religion, and culture. At the center of the story is the Dalai Lama himself, holding true to the Buddhist ideal of non-violence in the face of the terrible suffering he and his people have endured. The epilogue includes a portrait of the kind of Tibet the Dalai Lama envisions in his “middle way” proposal—culturally free, a global national park, and a sanctuary for spiritual seekers from around the world. THE FIVE INVITATIONS Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully By Frank Ostaseski Flatiron Books, 2017; 290 pp., $27.99 (cloth) Death is too important to be left to the dying, says hospice expert and Buddhist teacher Frank Ostaseski. As co-founder of the San Francisco-based Zen Hos- pice and founder of the Metta Institute, which promotes mindful and com- passionate end-of-life care, Ostaseski has sat on the precipice of death with thousands of people. That experience has taught him that the lessons found in death can help us live—if we choose not to push the real- ity of death away. In The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully, Ostaseski distills the wisdom of his care-giving career into these principles: don’t wait; welcome everything, push away nothing; bring your whole self to the experience; find a place of rest in the middle of things; and cultivate don’t-know mind. These five invita- tions are invaluable guides for the terminally ill and their loved ones, but will also help people deal with all manner of transitions and crises. LION’S ROAR | MAY 2017 76
