Author: Padmasambhava, Gyatrul Rinpoche, and translated by B Alan Wallace
This remarkable book reveals details of the six bardos and how to transform them into vehicles for enlightenment. In life and in death, in meditation and in dream and sleep, every transitional stage of consciousness or bardo, provides an opportunity to overcome our limitations, frustration, and fears and to experience an uncontrived and natural liberation.
This is a translation of Padmasambhava`s unique text the Profound Dharma of the Natural Liberation through Contemplating the Peaceful and Wrathful: Stage of Completion Instructions on the Six Bardos, dictated to his consort Yeshe Tsogyal and later rediscovered by the terton Karma Lingpa. It is accompanied by a lucid commentary by Gyatrul Rinpoche.
"This rare teaching of Guru Padmasambhava, the founder of Buddhism in Tibet, is finally here for English readers as the heart of this book. Rediscovered as a mystical revelation in the 14th century by Karma Lingpa, this teaching illuminates the most profound questions about who we are and provides a road map for the journey through life, death, and rebirth in great depth and simplicity." Tulku Thondup.
