The Tibetan Book of the Dead is a Book of Space

Book coverThe Tibetan Book of the Dead…is not based on death as such. It is a “Book of Space.” Space contains birth and death; space creates the environment in which to behave, breathe, and act. It is the fundamental environment which provides the inspiration for this book.

From “Commentary” in The Tibetan Book of the Dead, translated with commentary by Francesca Fremantle and Chögyam Trungpa, page 1
