The highest and most profound level of Buddhist practice, the Vajrayana categorizes existence as an endless cycle of experience called the four bardos. These four periods include our present life, the process of dying, the after-death experience, and the quest for a new rebirth.
Drawing from his intimate knowledge of the innermost Vajrayana teachings, the Tibetan master Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche presents in THE BARDO GUIDEBOOK straightforward, direct instructions on how to deal with the four bardos. Having taught students from many nations for the last fifteen years, Rinpoche is adept at integrating the profundity of Tibetan Buddhism with a modern Western perspective. Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche is also the author of THE UNION OF MAHAMUDRA AND DZOGCHEN, published by Rangjung Yeshe Publications.
'Please understand that this book is not merely a description of the bardo states. It is a guidebook on how to practice in this life and the next.'
