The Tibetan book of the dead
Author: Giuseppe Tucci
The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the most impressive works of culture of all time, one of the texts of Eastern spirituality that has also had the greatest influence on Western thought. It dates back to the eighth century AD and collects the teaching on life and death preached by the semi-legendary figure of the great master Padmasambhava, on the experiences of the conscious soul in the time interval which, according to Buddhist culture, lies between death and the rebirth. A fundamental text for those who want to go to the heart of the oriental spiritual tradition, here re-proposed in its first Italian translation directly from Tibetan by one of the greatest orientalists of our country.
