The Tibetan Book of the Dead - Audio Book
This scripture from Tibetan Buddhism was traditionally read aloud to the dying to help them attain liberation. Death and rebirth are seen as processes that offer the possibility – through hearing the appropriate spiritual instructions – for a person to use the moment of death to recognize the nature of mind and attain liberation. This bestselling translation emphasizes how to apply the experience of death to any situation of transition and impermanence – and thus to all of life. Shambhala Lion Editions. Read by Richard Gere.
