As the mindstream withdraws from the body, outer and inner signs indicate that death is near. When the external and internal breath have ceased, the luminosity of the true nature commences. It is within this bardo that visions and auditory phenomena occur. Soon we will find another life and body, determined by "karmic seeds" in the consciousness…
In preparing for death and assisting others in transition, families and caregivers can fulfill important roles. We wonder what will happen after we die, and about the experiences of the person passing away. To be truly helpful, we need to understand what occurs in this process. Khenpo Paljor will lead us through this journey, clarifying what occurs during the transitional state, addressing our questions, and supporting our abilities to assist. With this knowledge we can more effectively care for those who are dying, and thus be more effective and compassionate.
Khenpo Paljor Gyatso was born in Amdo, Tibet, and as a child was recognized as the rebirth of a lama from a nearby monastery. He began monastic life at nine and entered Larung Tarig College of Lharung Gar Monastery in Tibet at sixteen. He was a disciple of Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok and Khenchen Tsultrim Lodro among other Masters, and at the young age of 25 distinguished himself by receiving the title of Khenpo. Khenpo Paljor is a source of wisdom, warmth, and humor. He teaches meditation, mindfulness, and stress reduction at Psychiatric Alternatives and Wellness Center in SF.
