David-Neel, Alexandra - Bardo Thodal - Prayer for death or annihilation



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Immortality and Reincarnation – Alexandra David-Neel

Your consciousness is separating from your body and entering the Bardo.

Appeal to your energy to allow you to see this as you cross the threshold and retain total consciousness.

The vivid clarity of the Light without colour and emptiness will appear and envelop you with a quickness greater than lightning.

Don’t allow fear to make you retreat and lose consciousness.

Plunge into that Light.

Reject all belief in an ego and all attachment to your illusionary personality.

Dissolve its Non-being into Being and be free.

The source of the experience
