Tukdam: Between Worlds

A journey through life and death

Tukdam: Between Worlds Most of us regard death as something clear-cut, fully explicable by medical science. Yet in what Tibetan Buddhists call tukdam, advanced meditators die consciously, their bodies remaining lifelike and preserved for days, sometimes weeks after clinical death. Mingling scientific and spiritual perspectives, this is a groundbreaking exploration of a mystery which bridges life and death.
