DISCUSSING THE BARDO

Walker Ballantine The Tibetan Book of the Dead is a great study.... if you want to know what happens after death and before re-birth.

Angela Hoffberg Walker Ballantine, I think a million different things can happen based on the state of the soul. Jai baba also explains what happens, but this book caught my eye, sounds interesting, so I looked it up, then I ordered it. I am looking forward to receiving it.

Walker Ballantine Hi John, Yes, The Bardo (sometimes spelled with an 'h') is a fascinating part of human existence. It's that place the consciousness goes after death and before re-birth is chosen. The most amazing part of it is that the individual soul can be aware in this place..........................and the really advanced mind can visit another living high consciousness at this point...........This would partially explain how I received a visit from the former zen master at the Rochester temple, how he was able to visit me at night some months ago.......................................These saints and Bodhisattvas, they don't stay dead for long....................I guess, centuries ago, we referred to these soul-spirit-minds as angels.

John Sallie It can also prove to be an absolutely terrifying void. A place where thoughts become things and your worst nightmares are brought to life. As with all things, the Yin and the Yang prevail.

Walker Ballantine Yes, if you're going to discuss monsters, you have to be prepared to dodge a few.... You're making a good point - about thoughts becoming things.

Walker Ballantine Angela Hoffberg I've been conscious for some time of a realm in which elevated minds of full consciousness exist --- you can even ask for their aid. And you'll get it!
