Essence of the Bardos

Essence of the Bardos

Course Overview

The bardo teachings of Tibetan Buddhism are profound and precious teachings that address both how we approach the transitory, momentary experience of this life, with its infinite transitions, and how we approach the transitions associated with dying and death. The word “bardo” actually means “intermediate state,” or “between.” Thus, at its heart, the bardo teachings are concerned with the core Buddhist teaching of impermanence, both in life and in death, and with the liberation that comes with seeing the real nature of the mind in the face of all that change.

Essence of the Bardos starts September 2019 and continues through October as part of your Vajrayana Online subscription.
