Bardo

Post by kalden yungdrung » Mon May 13, 2019 10:22 am

Tashi delek,

This is a Zhitro (Peaceful and Wrathful deity) Thanka according to Kundol Dakpa's tradition, and the approximate date of this Thanka is arround 19th century.

Also here these Deities are all inside our heart residing.
Like we know in the Bardo of Dying, nothing of all those visions come from outside. Buddhahood also does not come from outside.
In the Bardo Trödol, the person is hearing many times that everything he "sees" is not coming from outside but is stemming from the Mind.

Recognizing these visions, can result in Self Liberation.

The Bardo Book of Dying is a Dzogchen Book, because it is based on visions and lights, which form a part of Dzogchen Thögal practise.
Also in daily Bön Dzogchen practise these visions of Thögal are never coming from outside.

IN ADDITION:

Bardo of dying, when the mind is disconnecting from the body, is related / connected to the 5th Lamp.

==========================

The Lamp of the Time of the Intermediate State (bar do dus kyi sgron ma) ,
denotes the Intermediate State of Reality Itself (chos nyid kyi bardo) where the ground manifest itself as peaceful and wrathful Buddha-Fields.

It highlights the close relationship existing between the visions arising through the application of the Leaping Over / Thögal, (thod rgal) and the visions supposed to appear in the Intermediate State of Reality Itself. In other words,

it is assumed that the Leaping Over opens up the way to experience right away what usually is only experienced after death, thus creating the possibility to attain Buddhahood in this very lifetime.
