The most graceful English translation of this masterpiece of world literature - prepared with the participation of the Dalai Lama and eminent contemporary masters of this tradition appointed by the Dalai Lama

One of the greatest works created by any culture and one of 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 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 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.

'Extraordinary ... this work will be a source of inspiration and support to many' His Holiness the Dalai Lama

About the authors:

Commentary by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Thupten Jinpa is the senior translator to the Dalai Lama and President of the Institute of Tibetan Classics. Graham Coleman is founder of the Orient Foundation for Arts and Culture, a major Tibetan cultural conservancy organization, and writer-director of the acclaimed feature documentary Tibet: A Buddhist Trilogy. Gyurme Dorje is a leading scholar of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, from which the Tibetan Book of the Dead literature derives.

Review:

Offers the wisdom of the Tibetan ancients to a jaded modern world (Sunday Telegraph)

One of the great scripts of civilization ... a voyage inside the profound imagination of a people (Time Out)

I can't imagine anybody aware of his or her own temporal humanity not wanting to find out what this book says ... this version is by far the most complete and comprehensive to date (Independent on Sunday)

Magnificent ... beautiful verse meditations (Guardian)

This is an event. A new and comprehensive translation of one of the seminal works of Tibetan Buddhism (Richard Gere)

One of the great treasures of wisdom in the spiritual heritage of humanity (Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying)

Synopsis:

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, 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.
