About the book:

"See, is it not written in this scroll? Read, you who will discover it in future ages...Read, children of the future and learn the secrets of the best...." According to Egyptian religion, we are travelers in eternity who require initiation in a body of knowledge that will take us into death...and beyond. The Egyptian Book of the Dead serves as our guide on this journey, an indispensable spiritual map--and here is the essence of that timeless guide, the complete Papyrus of Hunefer, with illustrations on every page, translation, and commentary. Brilliantly drawn hieroglyphs match the monumental writing on the temple walls and even surpass them in quality and clarity. Prayers, breathing exercises for protection, the "negative confessions"--assertions you have not sinned--and other rituals draw you fully into the spiritual experience. An introduction to one of the most important texts ever written, presented in visually breathtaking style.
