Listened to the Tibetan Book of The Day today. I am sure the book is an ocean of knowledge, and here in this post, I am NOT explaining the book. I will write selective and reflective thoughts of mine. Contemplations are mainly my recent journey and summary.
When we die, we face many different obstacles. Maybe the devil, the hell, divine beings, our karma, fears, desires, pride, aversion, hatred, whatever. It goes on for a while in that in-between zone. In that time, remember that all that is* arising from the mind. Realize that it all is just the mind’s projection. Your own mind’s projection!
Fear nothing! When you die, you don’t have a body to be hurt, don’t lose yourself in fear!. All that is just arising from your own mind. The lessons apply not only to the life after death but this life. The mind is tricky, and the way to defeat is to fight with no self. To be that formlessness.
Hold that one-pointedness and be equanimity. Then you have a chance for Enlightenment, even after you die. May you all liberate!
