Tibetan Book the Dead: Talk 1 - The Six Bardos

by Padmavajra (2005)

This talk is the first in a set of eight on the Bardo Thodol or 'Tibetan Book of the Dead'. Padmavajra explores the great text that reveals the realms between death and new life, where anything is possible in the Bardo - the 'intermediate state'. This is also an excellent introduction to the recent history of the text itself as it has come into the West and influenced practitioners and cultural figures in many significant ways.

Overall, this is a challenging and insightful series looking at how a true classic of spiritual literature has relevance to our modern ways of living and dying.

Talk given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, winter retreat, 2005
