IBA is pleased to announce that Tibetan Monastery Services is making webcasts of the teachings by the Ven. Kunsang Choephel at IBA. The topic for the Saturday November 17th teaching is ‘Bardo’ (see below). The teachings will be given in English.
Registration for the webcasts is now open at www.gompaservices.com. Registration will be available until December 10th.
The Venerable Kunsang Choephel will give an introduction to the Tibetan Buddhist perspective on death and dying. In this context the Tibetan term ‘bardo’ refers to an intermediate period of time between death and rebirth, during which our consciousness is said to undergo a series of transitional experiential states. Corresponding to these experiential states, specific meditative techniques are taught which are conducive to achieving liberation from cyclic existence. Ven. Kunsang Choephel will talk about how to prepare for death according to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The teaching will be recorded live and be available to view by the end of the day (Nepal time). The webcast will then remain available for you to view at any time of your choosing until December 10th.
The Gompa Services registration fee for the webcast is £4.00 or free for Gompa member-supporters. At the time you register you will also have the option to make a voluntary offering in support of the International Buddhist Academy.
