This beautifully illustrated art and poetry book is an interpretation of the "Bardo Thödol" - known as "The Tibetan Book of the Dead" - written in the eighth century by Padmasambhava, who was a fundamental figure in the dissemination of Buddhism in Tibet.
This enigmatic and ancient book is to guide people at any time in their lives, but above all aims to prepare them for his death and what will be after that. Therefore, the book divides human existence into six intermediate stages or phases: life, dreams, meditation, death, the reality after death and rebirth. These six stages are trying to tell us that life as we understand it, does not end with the death of the body. The existence continues to be reborn in another body again and again, repeating these stages, until reaching what Buddhism calls Enlightenment.
