4.0 out of 5 stars What it is for me
This review is for the paperback edition of the book and not the folio edition hardback which is beautifully produced. However it still has the colour plates of a thangka (Tibetan scroll painting) of the deities in the text and a neat metal foil on the cover...but what's inside it?

What isn't inside is the much loved Evens Wentz'sThe Tibetan Book of the Dead:...

By the time you have understood this number of concepts you may well be already dead!

To get an understanding of what dying is by reading this book you must be an already well educated tibetan munk.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice book, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
nice book ive dipped in and out so far.. its a classic so i wanted to get it and have a look. it recommends how to be, and what to expect I suppose. It can be obvious in some parts but again considered gentle in its approach because of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars after science, 25 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This translation is a real treat. At the edge of cutting edge science, the sceptics now admit that just before you die, you go into crazy hallucinations. The Buddhists knew about these hallucinations but they claim that the hallucinations carry on after the brain completely stops and the body rots!

We only know about the visions and the hallucinations because we can now revive some people who died on the hospital trolley. The Tibetans didn't have our advanced technology to revive the dead, but they still knew about the hallucinations and vision! This is an amazing FACT!

If they knew about what we are only now discovering in the West, than maybe the rest of what they claim is true.

Anyway, this is the book the read and who knows, science may one day also go beyond the post death state!
