THE BARDO PRAYER WHICH PROTECTS FROM FEAR
When the journey of my life has reached its end
and since no relatives go with me from this world,
I wander in the bardo state alone.
May the peaceful and wrathful buddhas
send their power of compassion and clear away
the dense dark of ignorance....
THE GREAT LIBERATION THROUGH HEARING
THE LAST TIBETAN TEXT WHICH MICHAEL
CHOSE FOR HIS OXFORD TRANSLATION CLASS
