I found the subject matter very interesting but remember the Taoist as they had some specific views on death but the Tibetan Buddhist were able to break it down even better and the three titles are books I started on in the beginning of my Buddhist path.
1. The Tibetan Book of the dead-W.Y. Evans-Wentz
2. The Tibetan Book of the Death -Robt Thurman
3. The Tibetan Book of living and Dying-Sogyal Rinpoche
Know that for centuries, the Tibetans carried out the rites of the dead to their belief system which is realy a fasinating subject matter but their belief systems were carried out very diligently by all involved, family members, monks, priests and so forth and what does happen when death approched and its after effects.
I have yet to hear from any other rites that are expained except by the Jewish race.
But it is said that what your preceive your death will be is what it will be, its the energy that leaves the body that determines how you believe.
Its suppose to be the most exciting experience that we as humans are expected to experience.
