Equanimity ~ The Bardo
According to the Tibetan tradition, the Bardo is an etheric realm that one’s soul passes through after leaving the physical body. Whenever we go through significant changes within a lifetime, we experience a casting off the old form into the new, like a caterpillar emerging into a butterfly. The presence of the Goddess as protectress of all creatures reminds us of the vital support available through any transition. Her supportive animal assistants of Lion (strength) and Owl (wisdom) preside. The center sky and rocks remind us of our connection to earth and heavens.
