Garchen Rinpoche phowa recording

Post by cjdevries »

Here is an updated link to Garchen Rinpoche's phowa audio recording. He recommends to play it after the deceased's last breath.
It is said to be as effective or nearly as effective as an actual phowa: https://garchen.net/wp-content/uploads/ ... -alone.mp3

Garchen Rinpoche seems to me to be an authentic living treasure.
"One should cultivate contemplation in one’s foibles. The foibles are like fish, and contemplation is like fishing hooks. If there are no fish, then the fishing hooks have no use. The bigger the fish is, the better the result we will get. As long as the fishing hooks keep at it, all foibles will eventually be contained and controlled at will." -Zhiyi

This kind of energy is what drew me to Buddhism 13 years ago, and the power of such a powerful Enlightenement for the sake of the passing is my driven hope to save others in this world. This recording is reminding me of a time I spent in a crematorium, in full Buddhist Metta. That experience changed my life forever. I wish this recording would just go on!

Thank you so much for sharing this. Any way to use it with someone who you are not in close physical proximity to?
