The Book of the Dead of Tibete

by Francesca Fremantle


Fascinating insights into the wisdom of the Tibetan Book of the Dead. The Tibetan Book of the Dead was first published by Diederichs in 1976 and has since established itself as a standard work. The ancient texts were translated by the great and now legendary master of Tibetan Buddhism Chögyam Trungpa. Remarkably, this edition has made this central source of wisdom accessible and understandable to those interested in Buddhism in the West. Even though the Tibetan Book of the Dead originally refers to the time between death and rebirth, the wisdom it contains is, for Trungpa, emblematic of our life in the here and now. Since its publication, this edition has proved its worth to hundreds of thousands, and is still a valuable guide for everyone in times of upheaval, change and personal crisis. For all those who want to deal with the Tibetan Book of the Dead for the first time, it offers an ideal introduction. Features:With numerous illustrations
