Description of Bardo experience (Rinpoache) ‘an entirely automatic or blind result of our previous actions or karma and nothing that occurs here is a conscious decision… of the being.’
Rinpoache 2 'we are simply buffeted around by the wind of karma'
Tibetan Book of the Dead described motion of mental body from thoughts 'like out of a catapult'
Tibetan Book of the Dead; How to cope with the Bardo 'Do not be distracted'
Buddhist Chant (Practise for Bardo) 'Nam Myoho Renge Kyo’ ‘I devote myself to the lotus sutra.’
