Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tibetan Book of the Dead: First Complete Translation (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
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!
