THE TIBETAN BOOK OF THE DEAD

INTRODUCTION A few words to present this volume which includes the creation of T
imothy Leary on The Tibetan Book of the Dead, clearly inspired by the Bard Thodo
l Buddhist. For those who do not know, the Bard Thodol is, so to speak, a kind o
f guide that prepares us for death. Just say that I wish this guide had fallen i
nto my hands when I experienced my first death of the ego, for the first time, i
f you've never heard of it, it's creepy but not devoid of spiritual wealth. I th
ink without a doubt, that a review of this reading before beginning a great jour
ney is, at least, a source of inspiration that will make many patterns over it.
I remember in my first Death of Ego heard reverberating sounds frightening and s
trange voices slowed down (as you will find in this Bardo), and immerse myself i
n a strange dark and cold world. Perhaps if I had read this before you experienc
e another cock sing. Anyway I want to say do not be afraid of a bad trip, much l
ess an Ego Death fledged, because my experience tells me that they are contribut
ing spiritual greatness, reintegration of our being and if you shall enter the t
est superáis in a world that will bring you the greatest experience of your lif
e. Raul del Pino FIRST Bardo Oh, man walking toward you time to find you new lev
els of reality. Your ego and your name are in the game to end. You are putting y
ourself in front of the Clear Light. You are experiencing this reality. In the e
go-free state where all things are like an empty sky without clouds. And the int
ellect is bare and clean as a transplant yet. Currently known by yourself and li
ve in this state. What is called ego-death is coming toward you. Remember: This
is the hour of death and rebirth. Take advantage of this temporary death to obta
in perfect condition. Iluminata. Concentrate on the unity of all living beings.
Maintained on the Clear Light. Use it to reach an understanding and love. If you
can not keep the happiness of enlightenment and if you are sliding within the c
ontact from the outside world. Remember: you can now experience hallucinations,
visions and insights will teach you a lot about yourself and the world. The veil
of routine perception will be changed in your eyes. Remember the unity of all l
iving things. 1
Remember the glory of the clear light. Be guided through your new life ahead. Be
guided by the visions of this experience. If you feel confused, invoked the mem
ory of your friends and your teachers. Try to achieve and retain the experience
of clear light. Remember: The light energy is vital. The endless flame of life.
An undulating and ever-changing swirl of Color can capture your vision. This is
the ceaseless transformation of energy. The life process. Fear not. Surrender to
it. Join. Part of you. You're part of it. Remember also: Beyond the continuous
and flowing electricity of life is the ultimate reality. The Void. Your own know
ledge, noposesión formed in the shape or color, is naturally void .. The. ultim
ate reality. The All goodness. The All peace. La Luz. Resplendent. The movement
is the fire of life from which everything comes. Join. Part of you. Beyond the l
ight of life is the peaceful silence of the Void. The quiet bliss beyond all tra
nsformations. Buddha's smile. Emptiness is not nothingness. lnobstruido, shining
, moving and happy. The Void is beginning and the end itself. Diamond consciousn
ess. The All-Good Buddha. Your own consciousness, shining, void and inseparable
Nopensamiento, novisión, nocolor is empty The intellect shining and full of hap
piness and quiet. This is the state of perfect enlightenment. Your own conscious
ness, shining, void and inseparable from the great body gleaming, has no birth o
r death. It is the immutable light which the Tibetans call Buddha Amitabha. Know
ing the starting noforma. Known this is sufficient. Recognizing the emptiness of
your own consciousness for Buddha domain remains in this survey and you will ma
intain the state of the divine Buddha mind.

SECOND Bardo Remember: You're going to experience three Bardos. Three states of
loss of self. First the clear light of reality. Fire come hallucinations games f
antastically varied. Later you will find the state of reentry. Again have a self
. Oh, man. It may be that your experience of transcendence of self, leaving your
old self. But you're not alone. Everyone arrives sometime. You're lucky to have
this experience of rebirth free to offer. Do not cling to that weakness to your
old self.€Even if you attached to your mind, you've lost the power to keep it.
For the fight you can not get anything in this hallucinatory world. Do not clin
g. Do not be weak. Whatever fear or terror that will still not forget these word
s. Enter your meaning in your heart. Go ahead. Right here is the secret life of
knowledge. Remember, O friend: When the body and mind separate, you experience a
quick view of the plain truth, subtle, radiant, brilliant. Vibrant, glorious. F
ear not. This is the radiation of your true nature. Admit it. From the mist of t
his radiation is the natural sound of reality. Reverberating like a thousand thu
nders simultaneously. This is the natural sound of your path. So do not panic. D
o not be terrified. Do not be afraid. For you it is enough to know that these ap
paritions are the ways of your own thinking. If you do not recognize your own wa
ys of thinking. If you forget your homework. The lights will dazzle you. The sou
nds you afraid. The rays will terrify the people around you will confuse you rem
ember the key lessons Oh, man. These realms will not come from somewhere outside
your ego. They come from inside you and shine upon you.

Nor do the revelations come from anywhere else. Exist from eternity within the f
aculties your own intellect. Recognizes that are of this nature. The key to enli
ghtenment and serenity during the period of ten thousand visions is simply that:

attached or you're scared. Neither attracted or repelled. Above all, do nothing
about the visions. They exist only within you. THE SOURCE (Eyes closed, externa

try to intellectualize. Do not play with it. Merge with it. Let it flow through
you. Get lost with it. Founded in the halo of rainbow light. At the heart of the
spear of energy. Get the domain of the Buddha in the middle kingdom. PHYSICAL S
YMPTOMS O friend, listen carefully. The bodily symptoms you are feeling are not
chemical effect. They indicate that you are fighting against the knowledge of fe
elings which surpass your normal experience. You can not control these universal
energy waves. Let the feelings are based all over you. Become a part of them. A

ating the shape of your ideal protector from the extremities is dissolved withou
t any idea made Meditate on The Clear Light

er future is secure.
II. MEDITATION ON GOOD GAMES You're wandering now e! Third Bardo As a sign of th
is look at your mirror and you will not see your face normal at this time you ou
ght to do simple resolution in your mind This is very important is how to run a
horse race with the use of kidneys Everything you want to happen

llows: The sexual activities, handling of machinery, the simulation of laughter,
scary sounds and sporadic appearances, these phenomena are indeed illusions in
nature however they may appear truly They are unreal and false appearances are l
ike dreams and not permanent, not fixed What advantage is there to abide and be
afraid of them? All are hallucinations of your mind Your mind itself does not ex
ist So why are these? Only by taking these illusions for real something you navi
gate around this confusing as there are all dreams, like clouds echoes As cities
such as mirrors, and relaxed forms as phantasmagoria The moon seen in water are
not real strong one moment sharply Keeping you in this line of thought's belief
that they are real is dissipated, and liberation is achieved
IV. MEDITATION ON THE VACUUM All substances are part of my own consciousness Thi
s awareness is empty, uncreated, not earnings, and meditating, Let the mind rest
in the uncreated state as the rain water on water The mind must be left on thei
r own easy mental posture In its natural condition unchanged clear and vibrant m
aintaining this relaxed, uncreated state of mind
