This is a translation of the complete Bardo Thodol which is large and most other translations have left out a lot of material. The book is very readable and has a long introduction by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead includes one of the most detailed and compelling descriptions of the after-death state in world litera- ture. It is not surprising therefore that when Chapter I I of our text, 'The Great Liberation by Hearing', first appeared in English, in 1927, it caused a considerable stir and has remained one of the most well known of Tibet's literary works ever since. In our work, for the first time, we are presenting a complete translation of all twelve chapters of the compilation of texts known as the Tibetan Book ofthe Dead, which includes nine chapters not translated in W. Y. Evans-Ventz's original publication.

The compendium of texts known as The Tibetan Book of the Dead contains exquisitely written guidance and practices related to transforming our experience in daily life, on how to address the processes of dying and the after-death state, and on how to help those who are dying.
