Description - The Tibetan Book Of The Dead, by Graham Coleman
'You will be happy in this life and joyful in the next' The Tibetan Book of the Dead is overwhelmingly the most influential of all Tibetan Buddhist texts in the West and one of the greatest works created by any culture. Offering one of the most detailed and compelling portrayals of the after-death state in world literature, it contains comprehensive guidance and practices related to transforming our daily lives, on preparing to use death as a means of liberation, on recognizing death when it comes and on how to help those who are dying or bereaved. Created in close co-operation with a remarkable range of contemporary Tibetan masters, this first complete and unabridged English translation of The Tibetan Book of the Dead remains entirely faithful to the breathtaking beauty and clarity of the original text.
