Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bardo Teachings is remarkable because it reveals a significant portion of the secret tantric path. This is genuine tantra—not a potpourri of Western self-help instructions and fragments of Eastern thought. . . . It is as true a guide to tantric Buddhism's view of life and death as can be found in print."—San Francisco Chronicle

"Bardo Teachings is an excellent pick for anyone looking for a greater understanding of the Buddhist cycle of death."—Midwest Book Review

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By John S. Baker on November 28, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Full disclosure: I have known the author many years and value his teachings very highly. This work is a major breakthrough in Western exposure to the Bardo teachings. The explanation is very clear and the question and answer sections are helpful. I believe that Western scholars continue to interview the author to gain still greater clarity of detail in these otherwise unavailable teachings. I have known this book since it first came out in the 1980s.

Only recently have I been able to read it slowly and really absorb its teachings. It is easy to read, but it requires close attention and meditation to comprehend in depth. I can not claim that I have mastered these teachings, but reading this text several times and finally meditating on it has taught me a great deal.

The author is a distinguished Lama and has given many retreats and Tantric empowerments as well as Sutra teachings. It has been my privilege to participate in some of these events. I could never adequately repay him for what he has done for me, how much less can I express it properly here. This work shows the depth of his learning and awareness.

It might not be the best thing to read these Bardo Teachings as your first exposure to Tibetan Buddhism, but I think even a newcomer could get something out of them. As I said above, I have read the teachings over and over again and each reading has revealed more. This is a book to treasure.

well what did you expect, with this title?
This book makes a great effort at explaining the bardo teachings, which are pretty complex. Don't expect this little tome to go in great depth, but it is a good primer for exploring these teachings.
