Explore the profound insights of Padmasambhava’s “Liberation Through Hearing” in this engaging presentation focused on the Bardo states and the process of dying. This session offers a deep dive into the Tibetan Book of the Dead, emphasizing the journey of the mental continuum through various transitional states after death. We’ll cover the essential Bardos: the Bardo of Dying, where consciousness detaches from the body; the Bardo of Dharmata, witnessing the true nature of reality; and the Bardo of Becoming, leading up to rebirth. The presentation will utilize detailed explanations, immersive visuals, and reflective meditations to illustrate how these states impact the soul’s journey and provide practical guidance for the dying process. Participants will gain valuable insights into navigating these transitions with awareness and compassion, drawing directly from Tibetan spiritual practices and beliefs.
