Chapter I. The Tibetan Book of the Dead - Book I. [The Dawning of the Wrathful Deities, from the Eight to the Fourteenth Day] [Introduction] Now the manner of the dawning of the Wrathful Deities is to be shown.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead - Book I

In the above Bardo of the Peaceful [Deities} there were seven stages of ambuscade. The setting-face-to-face at each stage should have [caused the deceased] to recognize either at one or another [stage] and to have been liberated. Multitudes will be liberated by that recognition; [and] although multitudes obtain liberation in that manner, the number of sentient beings being great, evil karma powerful, obscurations dense, propensities o too long standing, the Wheel of Ignorance and Illusion becometh neither exhausted nor accelerated.

This is the Bardo of the Wrathful Deities; and, they being influenced by fear, terror, and awe, recognition becometh more difficult.

Sankya - The Sacred Doctrine

It only proves that the truth, the need to realise it and the way to reach it have remained the same! If it is the human tendency to keep forgetting, it is the nature of the divine to keep reminding. The recapitulation of the one reality is initiated through a series of reminders, served by the Higher Ones who descend for this purpose, till the human beings ascend unto their divine nature. Or, till remembrance becomes a natural process. As such, Kapila was the first one to descend to give out the way of systematised wisdom to ascend. We have to bear in mind that this age is new to us and not to itself. The way to truth is offered in many ways! The Heart of Awareness - The Ashtavakra Gita.
