The Tibetan Book of the Dead
The Tibetan Book of the Dead: The Great Liberation Through Hearing In The Bardo
By Guru Rinpoche according to Karma Lingpa
Translated by Francesca Fremantle & Chogyam Trungpa
In this classic scripture of Tibetan Buddhism—traditionally read aloud to the dying to help them attain liberation—death and rebirth are seen as a process that provides an opportunity to recognize the true nature of mind. This translation of The Tibetan Book of the Dead emphasizes the practical advice that the book offers to the living. The insightful commentary by Chögyam Trungpa, written in clear, concise language, explains what the text teaches us about human psychology. This book will be of interest to people concerned with death and dying, as well as those who seek greater spiritual understanding in everyday life.
