The Intermediate States or Bardos

Just released :

The Intermediary States or Bardos, by Jean-Luc Achard, translated from the French by Marianne Ginalski, Khyung-mkhar, PDF ed., 15 pages.

Back cover:

 
The Bardos are generally identified with post-mortem states, whereas in original teachings, these states actually cover instructions that the practitioner is supposed to apply during his lifetime, in the course of meditative absorptions, during sleep, at the time of death, and eventually during post-mortem states per se. The present booklet describes the basic principles associated with these specific states, according to the perspective given in the teachings of the Great Perfection (Dzogchen), within the Nyingmapa tradition.

Dra Thelgyur — Quotes & Commentaries #04 — The explanation of the Lamp of Self-Arisen Sublime Knowledge, translated and commented by Jean-Luc Achard, PDF ed., July 2016, 11 pages.

Back cover :
 
The Lamp of the Self-Arisen Sublime Knowledge (shes rab rang byung gi sgron ma) is a non-visionary Lamp, actually abiding as the utterly pure and non-discursive knowledge of the natural state. In this perspective, it must be regarded as a strict synonym of Awareness (rig pa) itself.

Back cover :

The Lamps of Wisdom (ye shes kyi sgron ma) are among the core representations of Dzogchen teachings.
