Guest Editorial: A New Book of the Dead: Reflections on the Near-Death Experience and the Tibetan Buddhist Tradtion Regarding the Nature of Death
Description: Article offering a comparison of historical cases of Tibetan near-death experiences (NDEs) and contemporary Western accounts. A tradition of NDEs in Tibetan culture, the das-log experience, affords such a comparison. Modern NDEs differ from das-log experiences in ways that reflect their cultural context and may provide the foundation for a new Book of the Dead especially fitted to the existential and planetary concerns of modern time.
