Of the six bardo states, the Dream (Milam) Bardo is similar to the (Chikkhai) bardo that takes place during the transition of death, during which we experience the "clear light". This opportunity is a gateway for accomplished practitioners to attain liberation. Dream yoga's focus is on transforming the dream state into Buddhist practice for this purpose, and is a training that anyone can accomplish. Khenpo Paljor will help us understand how to utilize these teachings. There will be time for Q & A. 

TLC is very happy to have Khenpo Paljor Gyatso teach for us again. Khenpo was born in Amdo, Tibet, and as a child was recognized as the rebirth of a lama from a nearby monastery. He began monastic life at nine and entered Larung Tarig College of Lharung Gar Monastery in Tibet at sixteen. He was a disciple of Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok and Khenchen Tsultrim Lodro among other Masters, and at the young age of 25 distinguished himself by receiving the title of Khenpo. Khenpo Paljor'senthusiasm for dharma and skill as a lama are a source of wisdom, warmth, and delight.
