In 1919 the distinguished scholar Walter Evans-Wentz visited an Indian monastery, where he encountered the source of this famous volume. Derived from a Buddhist funerary text, it offers instructions for preparing for death and moving through the various stages of rebirth. The book has since developed into a guide to attaining enlightenment and assuring an auspicious journey through the realms of the afterlife.
