The practice of Amitabha P’howa is the extraordinary Vajrayana method for attaining rebirth in Amitabha Buddha’s pure realm. At death, the “P’howa of Three Recognitions” allows us to direct our consciousness out of our body and into the exalted environment of Amitabha’s enlightened mind. Once enlightened, meditative realization and the capacity to benefit others increase to their ultimate potential. P’howa accomplishment ensures we will not die in a state of spiritual uncertainty, drifting helplessly in the after-death bardo. This practice also provides a consummate method to help others when they die.

Following authorization in 1986 by her teacher and husband, Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, Chagdud Khadro has taught the meditation of p’howa, for thirty years. Her teaching is informed by writings and oral transmissions of such great masters as Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, Karma Lingpa, the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, and Tulku Thondup Rinpoche. Chagdud Khadro has also provided counsel in many situations of dying and death.
