Most widely held works by W. Y Evans-Wentz
The Tibetan book of the dead; or, The after-death experiences on the Bardo plane, according to Lāma Kazi Dawa-Samdup's English rendering by Karma-gliṅ-pa( Book )

45 editions published between 1927 and 2008 in English and held by 1,797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the texts that, according to legend, Padma-Sambhava was compelled to hide during his visit to Tibet in the late 8th century. The guru hid his books in stones, lakes, and pillars because the Tibetans of that day and age were somehow unprepared for their teachings. Now, in the form of the ever-popular Tibetan Book of the Dead, these teachings are constantly being discovered and rediscovered by Western readers of many different backgrounds - a phenomenon which began in 1927 with Oxford's first edition of Dr. Evans-Wentz's landmark volume. While it is traditionally used as a mortuary text, to be read or recited in the presence of a dead or dying person, this book - which relates the whole experience of death and rebirth in three intermediate states of being - was originally understood as a guide not only for the dead but also for the living. As a contribution to the science of death and dying - not to mention the belief in life after death, or the belief in texts of the world, for its socio-cultural influence in this regard is without comparison."--Jacket

85 editions published between 1909 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tibetan yoga and secret doctrines; or, Seven books of wisdom of the great path, according to the late Lāma Kazi Dawa-Samdup's English rendering by W. Y Evans-Wentz( Book )

48 editions published between 1935 and 2000 in English and Hungarian and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work - a companion to the highly popular Tibetan Book of the Dead - Evans-Wentz presents seven authentic Tibetan yoga texts that first appeared in English in 1935." "Amid photographs and reproductions of yoga paintings and manuscripts, readers will encounter some of the principal meditations used by Hindu and Tibetan gurus and philosophers throughout the ages in the attainment of Right Knowledge and Enlightenment. Special commentaries precede each translated text, and a comprehensive introduction contrasts the tenets of Buddhism with European notions of religion, philosophy, and science." "These seven distinct but intimately related texts will grant any reader a full and complete view of the spiritual teachings that still inform the culture of the East."--Jacket
Tibet's great yogī, Milarepa : a biography from the Tibetan, being the Jetsün-kahbum, or biographical history of Jetsün-Milarepa, according to the late Lāma Kazi Dawa-Samdup's English rendering by Saṅs-rgyas-rgyal-mtshan( Book )

57 editions published between 1928 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this biography of Milarepa, readers gain a perspective of the celebrated man's struggles, work, and insight. Moreover, W.Y. Evans-Wentz offers - through the lens of Milarepa's experiences and teachings - knowledge that accompanies the ancient and universal wisdom that is Buddhism. But the story of Milarepa is not solely about religion; it also addresses the legacy that followed the death of one of the greatest religious gurus, exploring questions of lineage and legitimacy that were important in the centuries after Milarepa died."--Jacket

The Tibetan Book of the Dead for Reading Aloud is famed playwright Jean-Claude van Itallie{u2019}s poetic adaptation of traditional Tibetan passages used to aid and comfort at the time of death. His lyrical and insightful poetry is accompanied by Gerry Vezzuso{u2019}s vivid photographs, Tibetan art, and other images evocative of this process. This text leads us through the stages we experience after death and helps us to overcome the ambitions, desires, jealousies, and fears that can obscure our understanding of ourselves and our transition into the next life. -- from publisher description

In this classic scripture of Tibetan Buddhism--traditionally read aloud to the dying to help them attain liberation--death and rebirth are seen as a process that provides an opportunity to recognize the true nature of mind.
