Quick Book Review: The Tibetan Book of the Dead
"The Tibetan Book of the Dead" is a 'classic' of Buddhist literature. It is suppose to help one deal with the change that leads from life to death and the transition phase. It is suppose to help one even live their life better. Honestly, I didn't dig it that much. I also happened to read more on Buddhism here and elsewhere, and uhhhh, yeah I am a Christian who thinks Buddhism's key concepts are smart. I like Buddhism's philosophy on life, but I am a Christian. The multicolored light shows, six armed Gods and other stuff just isn't for me. This book cemented that. I guess this book did help with a transformation: this steered me back to my Christian roots. At least this book only cost me $4.
