    Table of contents for Buddhist rituals of death and rebirth: contemporary Sri Lankan practice and its origins / Rita Langer. Bibliographic record and links to related information available from the Library of Congress catalog. Death is only the beginning in Buddhist thought.

Each person born on the planet Earth is locked into a cycle of death and rebirth and can only achieve Nirvana when they successfully break the cycle.

    As the bardo is generally said to last a maximum of 49 days, these rituals usually last 49 days. Death and dying is an important subject in Tibetan Buddhism as it is a most critical period for deciding which karma will ripen to lead one to the next rebirth, so a proper control of the mind at the death process is considered essential.
