… in the between – Meditations and Illuminations on the ‘Tibetan Book of the Dead’

...in the between

‘…in the between’ brings together four of Australia’s finest multi-cultural collaborators in a highly original interpretation of `The Tibetan Book of the Dead’. Using selected readings combined with musical meditations and sound illuminations, this theatrical and musical experience provides an insight into how we can prepare for the mind’s release from the body and the experiences of ‘the between’. The ‘Bardo Thotrol’ (The Great Liberation through Hearing in the Between) text was originally composed by Padmasambhava in the 14th century. It was buried in central Tibet and later discovered by Terton (treasure revealer) Karma-Lingpa. “Although this book is ostensibly written for the dead, it is in fact about life” Francesca Fremantle (author of Luminous Emptiness and co-translator with Chogyam Trungpa of The Tibetan Book of the Dead).
