This book includes excerpts from the complete translation of the TIBETAN BOOK OF THE DEAD, which was edited by Coleman, and related commentaries. In the highly personal commentaries, Coleman draws on his experiences with grief and refers to research on near-death experiences. The excerpts from this central Buddhist text not only illustrate fundamental teachings but also include explicit teachings on how to direct a recently deceased person to break the cycle of birth and rebirth. Stephen Hoye is a forceful narrator who seldom alters his tone. He briefly pauses between the commentaries and the excerpts from the text, and then resumes his steady and persistent pace. The repetitiveness of phrasing and syntax can become a bit tedious to listen to. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
