Tibetan Book of the Dead (Bardo Thodol)

a series of talks by Padmavajra

This is a set of eight talks on the 'Bardo Thodol' or 'Tibetan Book of the Dead', one of the great classics of spiritual literature. Padmavajra explores what is a truly startling text, one that has us traversing the realms between death and new life, where anything is possible in the 'Bardo' - the 'intermediate state'. We meet strange and wonderful beings, and the ride is both exhilarating and terrifying. But the adventure, the inevitable pilgrimage, is one we must be ready for, and so we have this: a challenging and insightful series looking at how such an unsettling evocation of the afterlife can also have such urgent relevance to our modern ways of living and dying.
