Publisher Comments:

The Tibetan word bardo is usually associated with life after death. Here, Chögyam Trungpa discusses bardo in a very different sense: as the peak experience of any given moment. Our experience of the present moment is always colored by one of six psychological states: the god realm (bliss), the jealous god realm (jealousy and lust for entertainment), the human realm (passion and desire), the animal realm (ignorance), the hungry ghost realm (poverty and possessiveness), and the hell realm (aggression and hatred). In relating these realms to the six traditional Buddhist bardo experiences, Trungpa provides an insightful look at the "madness" of our familiar psychological patterns and shows how they present an opportunity to transmute daily experience into freedom.

Here bestselling author Chogyam Trungpa discusses bardo in a very different sense--as the peak experience of any given moment--and shows how these six patterns present an opportunity to transmute daily experience into freedom.

Synopsis:

Our experience of the present moment is always coloured by one of the six psychological states and its characteristics - the god realm (bliss), the jealous realm (jealousy, lust for entertainment), the human realm (passion and desire), the animal realm (ignorance), the hungry ghost realm (poverty and possessiveness) and the hell realm (aggression and hatred). In relating these realms to the six Buddhist Bardo experiences, traditionally associated with life after death, the author provides an insightful look at the "madness" of our usual behaviour patterns. At the same time, the author shows how these patterns present an opportunity to transmute daily experiences into freedom.
