The great liberation by listening in intermediate states.
Read and praised all over the world, The Tibetan Book of the Dead is now part of the literary heritage of humanity.
Long diverted from its true meaning and presented piecemeal, it is here, for the first time, delivered to the public in its complete form, directly translated from Tibetan and explained in its original context. Composed by the great master Padmasambhava in the eighth century, it deals with the deepest mysteries of existence: the dream, the meditation, the moment of death ... A book of wisdom, crossed by the breath of the spirit that does not has neither beginning nor end and for whom death is a moment of truth, returning to the fundamental light.
Padmasambhava, born in the 8th century in Pakistan's Swat Valley, is the founder of Himalayan Tantric Buddhism. He is also known as Guru Rinpoche ("precious master") in present-day Bhutan and Tibet. He is credited with the Bardo Thodol, or Tibetan Book of the Dead, a text describing the states of consciousness and perceptions between death and rebirth: according to Buddhist spirituality, his study and recitation contribute to a better reincarnation. .
