Read full description of the books:The Liberation Thru Hearing During the Intermediate State (Tibetan: bar do "liminality" or "threshold"; thos grol "liberation"), sometimes translated as Liberation Thru Hearing or transliterated as Bardo Thodol, is a funerary text. It's often referred to in the West by the more casual title, Tibetan Book of the Dead, drawing a parallel with The Egyptian Book of the Dead. The Tibetan text describes, & is intended to guide one thru, the experiences that the consciousness has after death, during the interval between death & the next rebirth. This interval is known in Tibetan as the bardo. The text also includes chapters on the signs of death, & rituals to undertake when death is closing in, or has taken place. It's the most internationally famous & widespread work of Tibetan Nyingma literature. However, despite knowledge of texts & practices related to the Bardo-the book as found in the west is virtually unknown in Tibet in the title or form.
