Geshe Tashi Dhondup teaches this three-session course on the death process, dissolution in eight stages, and the bardo. Learn the mechanics of what happens to the physical body during death, the internal signs that appear in our minds at various stages of dissolution, and the features of the bardo our subtle minds encounter while in the between-state of death and rebirth.
The purpose of this series is to give an initial taste of the sophisticated line of inquiry underpinning one of the most central tenets of Buddhist thought and practice and to discuss how we might use the same methods used in the ancient Buddhist texts for answering modern questions not directly addressed in ancient times.
