The Tibetan Book of the Dead: Living and dying in peace

By on February 18, 2019

The Bardo Thödöl is a spiritual treasure revealed in Tibet in the 14th century. It is intended to guide the consciousness through the process of death and rebirth, and describes in great details the experiences that arise — from the dissolution of the body’s elements, to the visions of clear light.

This text has inspired generations of yogis in Tibet, as well as many Western psychologists, scientists and researchers since the early 20th century. These unique instructions on how to liberate the consciousness at the time of death also point to a path for living with greater peace and awareness.

An introduction to Vajrayana Buddhism: How to live with greater compassion, awareness and pure perception.

Saturday 23rd February, 2pm-4pm

This short introductory talk can be attended on its own. However, if you are joining for the whole weekend and want to make the most out of the event, we strongly recommend booking onto this as well, as this session will lay the ground for the rest of the teachings.

Sangye Dorje
Sangye Dorje has been following the Vajrayana path since meeting his root lama and Dzogchen master Rigdzin Namkha Gyatso Rinpoche, twenty years ago. Since then, he has been working as his main translator and personal attendant, thus receiving Rinpoche’s most precious pith instructions, oral transmissions, and ripening empowerments. Sangye Dorje has been teaching the Dharma for ten years, and was recently entrusted as Namkha Rinpoche’s representative.

His root teacher
Namkha Rinpoche is an eminent Dzogchen master, and one of the main holders of the Dudjom Tersar lineage. Born in Tibet in a family of nagpas (ordained lay tantric practitioners), he has followed over 300 lamas and spent over 6 years in retreat. His root lamas were Dudjom Rinpoche’s own son and daughter: Thinley Norbu Rinpoche and Semo Dechen Yudron. Since arriving in the West in 1998, he has been working relentlessly to teach the precious Dharma in a most authentic way.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead: Living and dying in peace will be held at 8 Mackintosh Lane Saturday 23rd February to Sunday 24th February 2019.
