Overcoming the Fear of Death: The Bardo Journey and Rebirth:

Date June 7-9, 2013
Time 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Location 412 North Aurora Street
Instructors Geshe Lobsang Drakpa Translation by: Palden Oshoe
Cost $140.00

Death is inevitable and awaits us all. All living beings fear death. This fear of death is partially derived from not understanding death and the process of dying. By knowing how to die and understanding the levels of the death process, we can not only protect ourselves from the fear of death, but also learn to go through the death process blissfully. Peace of mind during the death process and passage through the bardo state contributes to fortunate rebirth. Knowledge of these states can be applied to both to one’s current practice as well as at the time of physical death. In this weekend intensive retreat, Geshe Drakpa Gelek will teach the manner of the death process and how to overcome our fears in the intermediate dream-like bardo state.
