The Tibetan Book of the Dead: Decoding an Ancient Masterwork

A spiritual masterpiece of unparalleled profundity, The Tibetan Book of the Dead is as applicable today as it was a thousand years ago. While it was written as a guidebook for death, it is equally The Tibetan Book of Life. Studying The Book ironically brings you more fully into life, and gives birth to a new view of reality. This talk will explore the universality of the “death principle,” and how you can practice death now using this text as a guide. According to the Tibetans, death is a journey of the mind, and by exploring your mind with this book at your side, you can “die before you die.” But why is The Book so hard to understand? What are the “access codes” that allow you to decipher this impenetrable text? And what are the many “near enemies” that await the unprepared reader? This talk will equip you with the tools necessary to understand this magisterial tome.
