It's still the holidays, but I can't sit around and do nothing, so here are some more book reviews.
Tibetan Book of the Dead by Guru Rinpoche
Death is a part of life. There’s not getting around that. Death is also a
major subject in the world’s religions. One religious text that deals
with death is the Tibetan Book of the Dead by Guru Rinpoche.
There are many different versions and translations of this particular
book. This review focuses on the Shambhala pocket edition (256 pages,
Shambhala Pocket Classics, $7.00) with translation and commentary
provided by Francesca Fremantle and Chogyam Trungpa.
