Living and dying in peace: an explanation of the Tibetan Book of the Dead
Time & Location
About The Event
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.
This event will spread over three sessions:

Sangye Dorje has been following the Vajrayana path since meeting his root lama, 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.
Our 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.
