Ive been wanting to read TBD for a while now.  Have you also read Leary's psychedelic experience?  I think that was the one that was adapted from the Tibetan book of the dead.

Yes, I have read parts of The Psychedelic Experience.
I believe TBD is an allegory for ego death and rebirth from meditative/psychedelic experiences.
I love the anecdote that Leary, Dass, Alpert made The Psychedelic Experience based of TBD and John Lennon made Tomorrow Never Knows based off The Psychedelic Experience.

Leary's book is more of a tool inspired by the TBD than a book meant to modernize or just put it in a drug context.  Leary's book is a tool to identify where a person is during an intense trip and then provide material to be read aloud to help a person through that section of their trip.  It is not necessarily to help people through something "bad" either, it might just be to help someone take a more enlightening view of what they are experiencing at that moment.

The actual rites based upon the Tibetean use of the TBD go on for days.  The rite is essentially performed to help a person navigate the afterlife and give them a better chance in where they go next.  The soul is thought to retain some link to the perception of sound through the corporeal body.  The appropriate sections are read during the stages of death, which are believed to be happening well after the obvious physical death.

I am not a cannabis grower.  I find the cannabis growers to be the most open to experimenting and sharing out of all of the different botany groups I enjoy.  I frequently use the suggestions that I find to apply to own organic gardening and food production.
