- THE TIBETAN BOOK OF THE DEAD : Liberation Through Understanding in the Between.
DetailsThe Tibetan Book of the Dead is an ancient Buddhist text on the themes of death and the afterlife.The Bardo Thodol is one of the oldest books on death and dying. It is alternately translated as The Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State, and carries its current name due to its parallels with the Egyptian Book of the Dead. A funerary text, it describes the experiences of the consciousness after death.It guides readers through the interval between death and the next rebirth. It also includes chapters on the signs of death, the funeral rituals and the rituals for people who are near death. It places the state between reincarnations into three bardos: the bardo of the moment of death, the bardo of the experiencing of reality and the bardo of rebirth. It also presents three other bardos: of life, meditation and the dream. Together, these bardos classify the states of consciousness and explain how the cycle of life continues after death. This edition presents a foreword by His Holiness The Dalai Lama.ABOUT THE Translator : Robert A. F. Thurman is an American Buddhist writer. He has written extensively on Tibetan Buddhism.
