The Tibetan Book of the Dead

£39.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book appears to have no major issues, except some very minor wear on some corners. The sleeve included on the back cover is in worse condition, and has a major tear along one edge. The pages of the book are also in very good condition. There is some noticeable, but minor issue where a selection of pages throughout the book have a very slightly folded top corner. This is most noticeable when the book is closed.

One of the greatest works created by any culture and overwhelmingly the most influential of all Tibetan Buddhist texts in the West, The Tibetan Book of the Dead has had a number of distinguished translations, but strangely all of these have been partial abridgements. Now, in one of the year's most important publishing events, the entire text has not only been made available in English but in a translation of quite remarkable clarity and beauty. A comprehensive guide to living and dying The Tibetan Book of the Dead contains exquisitely written guidance and practices related to transforming our experience in the daily life, on the processes of dying and the after-death state, and on how to help those who are dying. As originally intended this is as much a work for the living, as it is for those who wish to think beyond a mere conventional lifetime to a vastly greater and grander cycle.
