A four-week course beginning July 6. Led by Lama Eric Triebelhorn.
We will explore the four bardos (the four intermediate states) as taught by the mahasiddhas or great tantric masters of the past. These bardos are the phases of life, death, transition, and rebirth that we all undergo while caught in cyclic existence. We will consider the nature of these experiences, how to prepare for them utilizing practices we already know, and the opportunities for liberation they present. Each class will contain meditations relevant to that evening’s discussion.
Understanding the nature of these bardos can reduce much of the fear and anxiety that ordinarily accompany death and grant us tools navigate them as skillfully as possible, potentially leading to liberation from confused existence altogether.
