The bardo teachings are like a sacred compass. Like all the sacred teachings, they are reminding us not to get too attached to anything in this world—to where we are, to our life, or to the affairs in our life. “Don’t get too attached to anything” is one of the main messages of the bardo teachings. They encourage us to be “in” the world but not “of” it, and they remind us that we don’t belong to this world absolutely or eternally. In this accessible book, Anam Thubten presents the wisdom of the six bardos from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, showing their utter necessity for living life in the modern world.
