PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ITEM IS TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK. 

In the aftermath of heart surgery, Sam Bercholz, a longtime Buddhist practitioner and teacher, is surprised to find himself in the lowest realms of karmic rebirth, where he is sent to gain insight into human suffering.

Bercholz ’s near-death experience has more in common with Dante’s “Inferno” than it does with any of the popular feel-good stories of what happens when we die. As part graphic novel, part fine-art book, and the true story of a Buddhist near-death experience, this book is for anyone interested in Buddhist cosmology, offering a detailed and visually dramatic representation of the hell realms.

Pema Namdol Thaye is a master Tibetan artist who has garnered international acclaim as a painter, sculptor, 3-D mandala specialist, traditional Tibetan architect, author and art educator. His illustrations are a stunningly modern interpretation of Tibetan imagery that will amaze lovers of Buddhist art.
