Tibetan Book of the Dead: Leading Through Visions

A third use would be to construct a "program" for a session using passages from the text. The aim would be to lead the voyager to one of the visions deliberately, or through a sequence of visions. The guide or friend could read the relevant passages, show slides or pictures or symbolic figures of processes, play carefully selected music, etc. One can envision a high art of programming psychedelic sessions, in which symbolic manipulations and presentations would lead the voyager through ecstatic visionary Bead Games.


Hey all, does anyone here know of any such creations? I was originally thinking some Pink Floyd DVD's, but now I'm not sure.

There really isnt a concrete answer to this question, you just gotta know what you like with you 3-D glasses on. I think this refers more to planting obstacles in your subconcial expectations before taking a hallucinogen. For example, you repeat a certain word in your mind and concentrate on the definition, as a psychadelic substance kicks in, the perspective of this word will change the definition, or the perspective of the words definition. Usually during a psychadelic experience, for me, my mind tends to dig through its archive of information (memories, gestures, abilities, etc) and put it in front of your mind, recent or a historical element. During shroom trips for me, i would put a mixture of doubt, excitement, happiness and fear in my expectations. These expectations usually manifest into negativity, and I wonder why. Planning a psychadelic trip is not like planning a vacation, its actually harder, merely impossible. My guess is we have to find ways to interact the outside world with our inner subconcious when we trip. For example, before I ever even consumed a psychadelic substance before, I used to go to this website full of psychadelic flash arts by Larry Carlson (www.larrycarlson.com) He is quite the talented artist (IMO does too much acid :lol:) and I used to admire his work thinking, "gee this shit would scare the shit out of me during a shroom trip." So one time I actually tried watching those crazy animations during a trip and found myself oddly amused and comfortable, with an overwhelming feeling of disconnection that wasnt uncomfortable. The mind is pretty crazy. I think a good way to plan a trip is to take some salvia in a room or somthin ur going to stay in while you trip. Salvia ,for some reason, gives me a psychoactive ability to tell what I like or dislike. I remember the first time I tried salvia I said "I do not like this room" but really i love my room because its my room. Then I tried shrooms and had a bad trip every single time I was in my room. The mind is seriously crazy, but really voyaging a trip is just planning this with 3-D glasses on. I like to look at hallucinogens to be an experience of the opposite of yourself.

PS. There is a possibility that what I just said made absolutely no sense whatsoever.

the essence of art and nature seems to
be relationships with connectivity and progressions -
that might be worth contriving.
very little else is worth contriving.
directing the tripper to the connection of his body to a supporting surface, and how colors naturally connect and repeat in a visual field through natural progressions can be soothing and inspiring.

the book of the dead to someone not immersed in tantra will be alien and to someone who is it will be too serious.
