As the death toll continues to rise during the global pandemic, the Bardo teachings of Tibet can bring us more peace of mind. They also provide us with methods for reducing the suffering and enhancing the welfare of those who are dying or have passed away. The word “bardo” means “in between” in Tibetan, including the time between life and death, and the time between death and rebirth. In a live online broadcast, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche helps us to better understand these critical moments of transition and introduces prayers we can recite on behalf of our friends and loved ones who have died. He then recites the Great Mantra.
