….’the Tibetan Book of the Dead’

Two features with a related thread, the first being a limited re-issue through real gone music that features readings by Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner and Richard Alpert taken from the 1964 tome ‘the psychedelic experience – a manual based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead’ – which really is just as it says on the tin lid an astral audio book assisting one, I suspect, in the quest of achieving cosmic enlightenment through chemical assistance, me – well I just eat stuff found hidden under the fridge, find that always works. Anyway this comes pressed up on limited amounts of eye zonking splatter red wax.

 

Loosely related here’s a documentary featuring the recently parted Leonard Cohen discussing the origins and mystique surrounding ‘the Tibetan Book of the Dead’.
