Summary

Summary

A new and gorgeously illustrated translation of the ancient Tibetan masterpiece. What happens to us when we die? Where, if anywhere, do we go? Does reincarnation exist? Uniquely blending poetry and prose, this modern version of the Buddhist reference manual to the soul offers spiritual teachings -- plus additional commentary -- in crystal-clear language. Yet it is not actually a book about death; the original title might best be translated as Liberation Through Clear Light, and the knowledge it imparts should guide us through the constant changes and crises we experience throughout life.
