The Bardo Guidebook

Bardo Guidebook, now available in ebook Mirror of Mindfulness by Tsele Natsok Rangdrol is the foundation for the commentary Bardo Guidebook by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and is indispensable for the study of living and dying. This presentation of Tibetan Buddhist teachings on the endless cycle of experience, the four bardos — life, death, after-death, and rebirth — is aimed at inspiring and helping the practitioner achieve liberation from deluded existence and awaken to complete enlightenment for the benefit of others. It is an extraordinary introduction to — and preparation for — the art of living and dying. The Bardo Guidebook is written in astonishingly elegant, simple prose, and provides a great service: the mere act of reading it diminishes one’s personal pain and suffering. The book is a living thing that needs to be read each day. The translation is lyrical and pellucid, yet pulls no punches; it is mountain-stream clear.
