Read from January 09 to May 30, 2012 — I own a copy

A complex and informative text thought to have been written in the 8th Century. This edition provides an outline of Tibetan history and Buddhist theory prior to entering the true purpose of the writings. Meant as a message on how to transform the soul of man from death into the afterlife, it is in essence a descriptive text on the art of dying. I imagine only a practicing Buddhist of devout faith can actually grasp the depth of practices, however many, many coincidental references enhance the teachings of major religions that have been established since this text was transcribed. It is a book of wisdom, beauty and a mystical spirituality that transcends the act of death and dying.
