- The book is for those people who are practitioners who can see the energy spots (bindu) and energy channels (nadi). Because during the dying process, a person’s consciousness is already in a state of confusion and it might not be able to ‘listen’ to what a guru tells his/her soul. So if you cannot see the deceased’s soul, you have no idea of what he/she experienced; moreover to liberate the person’s soul. If you cannot save his/her soul, the only option for the dead is to follow you home! (no joking)
- Since the deceased’s soul is weak, the only best thing is to guide the deceased’s soul into a practitioner’s body and go over the process described in the Book Of Death. So a practitioner needs to enter the state of meditation in order to guide the dead soul and not just by reading. Only by confining the soul in a practitioner’s chakra and energy channel that the dead soul can control the timing correctly.
- The ‘day’ in the book does not refer to our humanly ‘day’ of 24 hours. The length of a day for deva is much longer than a ‘day’ for a dog for example. There are just too many people literarily take the so-called ‘day’ in the book as our human day… provided that you can guide the dead soul into your own energy channel and synchronize the ‘animal day’ into ‘human day’.
- The description of duration between death and birth as 49 days. As I have pointed out that this may not be true for a person who is destined to be an ‘asura’ or a ‘hungry ghost’. The length can be immediately to hundreds of years.
- The duration of light a dead soul experiences can be in split seconds to a few minutes pending on the soul’s karma. A practitioner can hold the light for as long as 7 days in meditative state.

The Fallacy Of Book Of Death (度亡经的谬误)
It is none of my business as to how a person interpreted the ‘Book Of The Death’. I only want to point out some mistakes people who think they understood the book very well superficially.
A few days ago, I overheard a lady who appeared to be a follower of Tibetan Buddhism attending one funeral service:
“Oh! The dying process in Tibetan Book Of The Death says that all reincarnation process would ceased after 49 days…”
I didn’t interrupt her words as I had no intention to start a lengthy argument with the lady. Since there are still many people like her who just take words of the ‘book’ superficially, I might as well point out some unknown facts of the ‘book’:
So, if the process is as simple as what the lady has said, then there is no need for a guru. Although you can recite the book to the deceased, his/her soul might not be able to hear you if you are not ‘in sync’ with his/her frequency. A good try if you would, but I call it a waste of time and bad karma though you meant good.
