Bardo Thodol In Nineteen Simple Steps   3 comments

Now here is a jewel and mystery.

I found  Thomas Scoville’s amazing comic book version of the Bardo Thodol around Christmas session 2009.

It was available under this link: http://thomasscoville.com/ (this link is dead)

I was ready to leave the office so I did a quick, and not very successful,  color print of these 19 pages and saved the link.

Over Christmas break I read and re-read this version of the Tibetan Book Of The Dead.

I was without internet over the break (don’t ask) and lo Scoville’s link to these beautiful images was dead.

But the link remains as of January 31, 2010 dead.

Web searches turn up three additional sites where these images can be found.

A more academic approach to the Bardo Thodol can be found using the classic and ubiquitous

Evans-Wentz Edition of the Tibetan Book of the Dead (with a GREAT introductory essay by Jung)

(Amazon has used copies for for $0.76).

Many other sites exist on the web to popularize and discuss the Tibetan Book of the Dead,

here is one example.

And now a special bonus for those who have read all the way to the end of this post:
