Saying Prayers for Winter
My Shrine, cleaned for Losar and for Chenrezig practice for Winter
Today I'm taking a day off of work so I can stay home and do practice for my friend Winter. We believe that, on average, a person is in the intermediate state between births for 49 days. When a person is in the intermediate state, known as the Bardo, she doesn't have to deal with the baggage that a physical body contributes to the mix. So it is a good time to become enlightened. I'm praying that Winter achieve enlightenment, or at the very least, a good rebirth. May all suffering cease!
