Hey Noble Ones: Jesus, Avalokiteshvara and All Buddhas – Ep. 279
Tibetan Book of the Dead
Beginning this episode with a reading from “The Tibetan Book of the Dead: The Great Book of Natural Liberation Through Understanding in the Between” Professor Thurman uses his translation as a guide to the rich spiritual and emotional tools found in the end-of-life traditions of Asia and in the Vajrayana sciences and practices of India and Tibet.
Podcast includes: an invocation of and teaching on the greatly compassionate beings found Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and globally in the indigenous traditions of the Shamans, an introduction to the subtle body system of the yogic sciences for transmuting the three poisonous addictions, an overview of the eight dissolution states of death and their relationship to birth and life, sleep and dream yogas, and a discussion of the inter-relationship of particle physics, quantum entanglement, emptiness, and the psycho-physical experiences of bliss.
Episode concludes with an in-depth explanation of the channels, winds and drops of the subtle body and mind as taught in esoteric Buddhism, as in the mis-titled “Tibetan Book of the Dead”.
