Description

The Tibetan Book of the Dead - the Bardo Th "odol - is unique among the sacred books of the world as a contribution to the science of death and of existence after death, and of rebirth. It is used in Tibet as a breviary, and is read or recited on the occasion of death, but it was originally conceived to serve as a guide not only for the dying and dead, but also for the living. This book is intended for anthropologists, comparative theologians, and philosophers of religion.show more
