8 Gates of Bardo of Dharmata

Postby WeiHan » Tue Apr 16, 2013 7:06 am

Hi,

I would like to know if there is any English translated commentaries on the above topic.

Or are they mentioned in any of the 18 Dzogchen tantras or any of the Longchenpa Seven treasuries?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, among others, in the Nyi-zla kha-sbyor, chap. 4, etc.

or any of the Longchenpa Seven treasuries?

In his Theg-mchog-mdzod, his chapter(no.23 in vol.II) on the chos-nyid bar-do is very detailed on this subject.

Hi! Thankyou very much.

As I don't know Tibetan language, can you translate for me the English name of the book? I suppose that particular volume of Longchenpa series is available in English?

Thankyou very much!

The Nyi-zla kha-sbyor is the Union of Sun and Moon. It has been partially translated into English by G. Orofino in Sacred Tibetan Teachings: Death and Liberation. You can get in on Amazon (and I'm sure there's a free pdf on scribd or somewhere).

The Theg-mchog-mdzod is The Treasury of the Supreme Vehicle. So far and to my knowledge, only a French translation exists. I guess Richard Barron has done a translation in English but it has not been released yet as far as I know.

Is the French translation available?
