AMoNG the secret traditions of Tibetan Buddhism we find certain doctrines that deal with the central problems of human existence, with the advanced paths to self-knowledge, and with death. To these secret traditions belong the Tibetan Books of the Dead, which were for the most part found by "treasure discoverers" and thereby brought to our attention. Even though there is a definite and clearly developed basic structure peculiar to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, there are so many different works that build on this structure and elaborate various aspects of it, that we must talk of several Tibetan Books of the Dead rather than of one.

This book is an extensive commntary on the bardo not only in Buddhism but other cultures and diagrams of explanation that are found nowhere else in the literature.

This book is mentioned in Thrangu Rinpoche's Journey of the Mind and is available here as a free PDF download.
