Welcome

There is something intriguing – and indeed a little disconcerting -  about this little phrase:

YOU ARE ALWAYS IN THE BARDO.

…including NOW.

If indeed it is true – then it would make good sense to do Bardo Training.

This website, bardotraining.org is about that: training for the bardo – and is offering tools for realizing deeper  the nature of things and bardo training – to make your game better, to grow your soul, to find meaning in your life and for your BEING, to go deeper, to wake up a little more, to be a voyager neither attracted nor repelled, whose habits carry him/her through no matter if or where embodied – for the benefit of all beings everywhere and to relieve suffering of all and everything sentient.

The tools work – if used and applied as directed.

Sometime in 2002 I was guided to work with a “high tech shaman”. He also wrote “The American Book of the Dead”, a contemporary translation of the “Tibetan book of the Dead” – guiding the deceased through the afterlife. Although I had had a brief exposure to Tibetan Buddhism in Germany some 25 years earlier, I never really got into it. Now words and phrases like: “for the benefit of all sentient beings everywhere” and “bardo” were becoming more prominent again.

Bardo – what IS that really?

I read what the Tibetan say: the in-between state, the in between lives state. But there was something intriguing – and indeed a little disconcerting about this phrase:

YOU ARE ALWAYS IN THE BARDO.

What ? What you mean: always in the bardo?
So, wait a minute – I thought it was the time after death – like in between lives – and now it’s like: you are ALWAYS in the bardo?

This question has indeed been with me for about a decade, and more recently, born in part through the latest quantum physics realizations: the notion this flesh and blood reality is like a video game, a 3d full immersion tactile video game: played by the supreme mind. We’ll explore later some of the implications.

Of course, if you are always in the bardo, it could make sense to do bardo training – to have a better bardo run, a better time of it so to speak. To stay with the notion of the game, the earth game – what is it that makes you a good player, what is it that gives purpose to your game – your time on earth here? And then, after your body ceases to live, your Being no longer grounded in physicality, how to you move and travel well through the various dimensions without the grounding of the physical?

Here it is (again :) This website is about offering tools for realizing deeper  the nature of things and bardo training – to make your Urth game better, to grow your soul, to find meaning in your life and for your BEING, to go deeper, to wake up a little more, to be a voyager neither attracted nor repelled, whose habits carry him/her through – for the benefit of all beings everywhere and to relieve suffering of all and everything sentient.

…and in a strange way -  to be happy, though the kind of happiness may not look like the exited kind.
