The Six Bardos
With Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Date: Aug 3-6, 2023
Place: Tergar Osel Ling Monastery, Kathmandu, Nepal
Organised by: Tergar Asia
* This is an in-person event only.
The bardo teachings of Tibetan Buddhism are profound and precious teachings that address both how to approach the transitory experience of this life and how to use this wisdom to skillfully navigate the process of our own dying and rebirth. At its heart, the bardo teachings are concerned with the core teaching of impermanence, and with the liberation that comes with recognizing the true nature of the mind.
In this course, Mingyur Rinpoche will take us through the journey of the Six Bardos – the three bardos of this life, and the three bardos of death and dying – and offer practical guidance on what we can do at each stage of this cycle to make full use of our experiences for liberation. The course will also include teachings on Amitabha practice, and those who aspire to be reborn in Dewachen will be guided on the aspirations we must make to connect with Amitabha’s Pure Land.
To prepare ourselves for dying and learn the most meaningful path for living, join us at this event and hear from Rinpoche directly the key points of what he calls the Plan A to D of living and dying.
