Based on the Buddhist belief in reincarnation, the Book of the Dead is a how-to manual for dying: a guidebook of the Afterlife that includes encounters with gods, demons and one's own future parents at the moment of conception. Written in the 8th Century AD, its description of the Tibetan afterlife bears an uncanny similarity to modern stories of the Near-Death Experience. Hidden from the world for over a thousand years, discovered in the remotest corner of the planet, finally translated in the 20th Century, this mythical and mystical text is one of the key scriptures of world religion.
