Second Life Prayer for Burmese Dead 46

To honour the souls of Buddhist monks and others who have perished in Burma in these last days, Dr Richard James Allen (inworld in Second Life: RichardJamesJiva Allen) read from The Tibetan Book of the Dead in the build of Thursday’s Fictions in Second Life on Friday October 5, 2007.


The Bardo Thodol, or The Tibetan Book of the Death, is a text traditionally read to the dying and the dead as a guide in their passage through the ‘bardo’ or intermediate state before they are reborn. Thursday’s Fictions in Second Life, an online 3D immersive space that explores ideas about reincarnation and karma, will offer a place for people from all of the world to meet virtually and pray.
