Summary
An ancient source of strength and guidance. Remains an essential teaching originating in the spiritual cultures of the Himalayas. Reveals the history and examines its traditional use in northern India, as well as its acceptance in Western hospices. Follows an old lama and his novice monk as they guide a Himalayan villager into the afterlife. The soul's 49-day journey towards rebirth is envisioned through actual photography of rarely seen Buddhist rituals
