We invite you on October 25th, to join us for the fifth instalment of Calgary’s most theatrical Halloween celebration, Bardo. Within the Tibetan Buddhism, there are six traditional states of death and rebirth known as the Six Bardos. This year we contemplate the fifth stage of Bardo - The visionary and auditory phenomena.

Chönyid bardo (Tibetan): is the fifth bardo of the luminosity of the true nature which commences after the final 'inner breath' (Sanskrit: prana, vayu; Tibetan: rlung). It is within this Bardo that visions and auditory phenomena occur. In the Dzogchen teachings, these are known as the spontaneously manifesting Thödgal (Tibetan: thod-rgyal) visions. Concomitant to these visions, there is a welling of profound peace and pristine awareness. Sentient beings who have not practiced during their lived experience and/or who do not recognize the clear light (Tibetan: od gsal) at the moment of death are usually deluded throughout the fifth bardo of luminosity.
