Description: The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the texts that, according to legend, Padma-Sambhava was compelled to hide during his visit to Tibet in the late 8th century. As a contribution to the science of death and dying -- not to mention the belief in life after death, or the belief in rebirth -- this book is unique among the sacred texts of the world, for its socio-cultural influence in this regard is without comparison.

Now in a new edition, it features a foreword, afterword, and suggested further reading list by Donald S. Lopez, Jr. author of Prisoners of Shangri-la: Tibetan Buddhism and the West. Lopez traces the whole history of the late Evans-Wentz's three earlier edition of this book, fully considering the work of contributors to previous editions (C. G. Jung among them), the sections that were added by Evans-Wentz along the way, the questions surrounding the book's translation, and finally the volume's profound importance in engendering both popular and academic interest in the religion and culture of Tibet. Another key theme that Lopez addresses is the changing nature of this book's audience -- from the pre-war theosophists to the beat poets to the hippies to contemporary exponents of the hospide movement -- and what these audiences have found (or sought) in its very old pages.
