Below you can find translations and resources related to Phakchok Rinpoche’s teachings on the Bardos.

Samye Institute can only offer live events such as this with the generous support of our patrons. If you can, please consider making an offering to support our technological, staffing, and interpretation costs.

Here is the profound instruction that liberates upon hearing, one of the six dharmas that bring enlightenment even without practice. It is the enlightened activity of the vidyādhara Pema Jungné, drawn from the Tukdrup Barché Künsel’s Essence Manual of Oral Instructions.


We are delighted to share that Rinpoche has requested that these recordings remain as a resource for those interested in studying the Bardos. You can find recordings of Rinpoche’s precious teachings, as well as audio translations on our YouTube channel.

As a token of our respect and appreciation. Samye Institute is happy to offer one complimentary month of Vajrayana Membership if you subscribe before May 15th.

The Samye Institute team continually releases new material for our members.
