By May 12th 2021, the INRESS TV channel will broadcast a documentary by Martino Nicoletti entirely devoted to the delicate subject of death, of support to death and the afterlife according to the Tibetan spiritual vision.
Based on the direct words of Khenpo Gelek Jinpa, abbot of the monastery of Shenten Dargye Ling, of the tibetologist Philippe Cornu, of the psychotherapist Christophe Fauré as well as on the teachings of Bardo Thödol or “The Tibetan book of the dead”, this film touches various fascinating subjects by creating direct links between the Tibetan vision and that one of our modern western world.
As Westerners, how do we feel about the theme of death? Is it a taboo, a repressed subject or an acquired and resolved matter? How do we perceive the delicate moment of accompanying a dying person, that of his “passage” as well as the mourning that follows departure? Do we have concrete tools to live and positively “manage” the passing away of a loved one? Is there a direct relationship between the visions of the afterlife narrated in “The Tibetan Book of the Dead” and the descriptions of near-death experiences?
