Crossings on a Bridge of Light

The Songs and Deeds of Gesar, King of Ling as He Travels to Shambhala Through the Realms of Life and Death

Douglas J. Penick

CROSSINGS ON A BRIDGE OF LIGHT is about the ultimate adventure in all our lives: the transition between life and death. It tells how Gesar, King of Ling moves between the realms of the living and the dead. This is the first English rendition of this exciting and inspiring episode in the Gesar of Ling epic. In this story, Gesar, King of Ling, moves between life and death to free his mother from the bonds of hell. He traverses the six realms of being and passes through the five traditional states (bardos). His journey reaches its apex in four visions of the enlightened rulers of the Kingdom of Shambhala. Gesar's inner journey, his encounters with a panoply of beings embodying the spontaneous presence of the awakened state, enable him to heal the doubts and divisions that have come to threaten his kingdom. This tale of how the vision of an enlightened society can be realized on this earth has inspired people for many centuries; it is equally powerful today.
