In the Tibetan tradition there are many stories of great meditators passing away with ‘signs of spiritual attainment’. Sometimes their body would remain without decomposing for weeks, with warmth radiating from the heart centre. There are even stories of bodies dissolving into rainbow light or precious relics miraculously appearing in their remains, as happened with Khentrul Rinpoche’s Root Guru.
These stories inspire us with the possibility that we can gain understanding or even mastery over the process of death and dying. They open us to the tremendous insight we can gain from the precious teachings of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, regardless of our own spiritual beliefs.
Khentrul Rinpoche will take us on a journey through what is known as the ‘bardos’, or transition periods, between one life and the next, and the tremendous opportunity they can offer if we view them as an opportunity for spiritual transformation.
There will be plenty of opportunity for questions, discussions and sharing throughout the day.
