The Bardo is a name for the intermediate state between death and the beginning of the next life. The teachings regarding the Bardo come to us from the Ma Gyud (Mother Tantra) and provide us with guidance on how to meet our death and traverse the stages of death without fear.
People who have not made a connection with spiritual teachings can find the moment of death, or even the thought of death, very difficult to face because of their fear of the unknown and their attachment to people and possessions in life. The Bardo teachings give the person who receives them an opportunity to learn about how to prepare for dying, so we can meet death with calmness and peace.
It is important to realize that all humans are impermanent and will face death. Learning about the process of dying allows us to connect with the presence of our own awareness and to be more fully aware of the present moment. Daily practice in maintaining this connection to awareness allows us to remember and utilize these teachings despite whatever distractions arise: in the course of our daily lives, in joyful or stressful situations, during illness and at the moment of death.
Join us for a weekend with Geshe Denma Gyaltsen, who will gently explain how we can understand this transition from a Bon Buddhist perspective. We will learn how to face death peacefully and by so doing allow ourselves to live life more joyfully.
