Natural Liberation:Padmasambhava's Teachings on the Six Bardo translated by Alan Wallace and Commentary by Gyatrul Rinpoche

THIS BOOK CONTAINS A TRANSLATION and commentary on the great Indian Buddhist tantric master Padmasambhava’s text, enti- tled The Profound Dharma of the Natural Liberation through Contemplating the Peaceful and Wrathful: Stage of Completion Instructions on the Six Bardos.| Presumably composed some time in the late eighth century, the text was dictated by Padmasambhava to his Tibetan consort, Yeshe Tsogyal. Tibetan tradition views Padmasambhava as an emanation of Amitabha, the Buddha of Infinite Light, and refers to him as Guru Rinpoche, or Precious Spiritual Mentor. His name, Padmasambhava, means “born froma lotus,” indicating his miraculous birth from a lotus in the midst of a lake in the region of Oddiyana. Adopted by the king of Oddiyana, Padmasambhava dedicated his life to the study and practice of esoteric, or Vajrayana, Buddhism.

This is an extensive book of 340 pages on the Bardo.
