Awakening in Daily Life: The Bardos of This Life

The Bardos of This Life


Course Overview

The bardo teachings of Tibetan Buddhism are profound and precious teachings that address both how to approach the transitory, momentary experience of this life and how to use this wisdom to skillfully and intentionally navigate the process of our own dying and rebirth. At its heart, the bardo teachings are concerned with the core teaching of impermanence, both in life and in death, and with the liberation that comes with recognizing the real nature of the mind in the midst of all that changes.

In this course we will learn the most important principles and practices of the first three Bardos, the Bardos of this Life. The course will also include videos and live webinars with Mingyur Rinpoche and Tergar Instructors Cortland Dahl and Tim Olmsted, discussion forums, an extensive Bardos workbook to deepen understanding and experience, and a range of other resources for study and practice.


Awakening in Daily Life starts December 1 2019 as part of your Vajrayana Online subscription.
