In this classic scripture of Tibetan Buddhism—traditionally read aloud to the dying to help them attain liberation—death and rebirth are seen as a process that provides an opportunity to recognize the true nature of mind. This translation by Chögyam Trungpa and Francesca Fremantle emphasizes the practical advice that the book offers to the living, and Fremantle's insightful introduction explains the text and presents a psychological perspective on its teachings. Read by the actor Richard Gere, this audio program offers a new way to encounter the profound meaning of this sacred text.
