    It is said that the more familiar one becomes with the bardo teachings from the traditional text, Great Liberation Through Hearing in the Bardo, the more likely one is to recall the instructions at the time of dying. We will read through the text – just as we read through the Rain of Wisdom on Milarepa Day, taking turns. It will likely take four to five hours.
    Death comes without warning. Come and listen. Come and read. Come and practice.
