An evolving work based on a triadic marriage between Daoism, the Sacred Tantra, and Unborn Mind Zen. Its scope? Life is one big Bardo experience…an endless repetition of “in-between” states (six bardo realms) of differentiating consciousness circling round and round the True Body of Reality and Kingdom of the undivided-self: the Dharmakaya. The impetus within the Lankavatarian Book of the Dead is to forever erase the fundamental error, the error that lies in always differentiating the images…the endless flow of perceptions that emanate from within your own mind; perceiving the images to be real the clouded mind misses the markless mark of the clear light of the Dharmakaya. One needs to learn to drink freely from the elixir of Primordial Bodhi in order to break the spell of the diseased differentiating consciousness, one that always metastasizes into sentient forms within the six realms of samsara.
The elixir of Primordial Bodhi restores the innate knowledge and capacity of the original essence—going back to the fundamental, primordial-principle; returning to the root-source. The Dao refers to this as helping the spiritual fetus (bodhichild) reach fruition—incubating and nurturing it for ten months (stages) as the energy is repleted; the spirit is whole again as one escapes from the drowning ocean of misery, the depths of the bardo experience as one awakens to the Diamond Body—a body impervious to the defiled body consciousness and freely propels the spirit to enter its unborn and imperishable spiritual foundation: the unoriginated Dharmakaya. In this sense, the Lankavatarian Book of the Dead is a trial run, a dress-rehearsal if you will, before the Great Bardo of Re-becoming comes knocking at the door.
