Title: The Tibetan Book of the Dead
Sub Title: The Great Liberation through Hearing in the Bardo
Summary: The Bardo Thotrol is a Tibetan Buddhist scripture of the Nyingma or old tradition. It concerns the nature of the mind and its projections-beautiful or terrible, peaceful or wrathful-which seems to exist objectively and inhabit the external world. In particular it describes these projections as they appear immediately after death, in a much more overwhelming form since the consciousness is no longer grounded and shielded by its connection with physical body. It teaches recognition of these terrifying and seductive forms and through recognition attainment of the state of enlightenment.
