Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1927, The Tibetan Book of the Dead, or the Bardo Thödol, has since been revised and reprinted in several editions. For this third edition, Dr. Evans-Wentz prepared a special Preface. Although the Bardo Thödol is used in Tibet as a breviary, and read or recited on the occasion of death, it was originally conceived to serve as a guide not only for the dying or the dead, but for the living as well. As a contribution to the science of death and of existence after death, and of rebirth, The Tibetan Book of the Dead is unique among the sacred books of the world.

Review:

"Dr. Evans-Wentz, who literally sat at the feet of a Tibetan lâma for years in order to acquire his wisdom...not only displays a deeply sympathetic interest in those esoteric doctrines, so characteristic of the genius of the East, but likewise possesses the rare faculty of making them more or less intelligible to the layman."
