Loh bardo

digital painting by Lohbado
As Lohbado fell into a deep sleep, it felt as though he were being pulled down into a moist dark pit, where roots stuck out through the clay walls and bug-like creatures gazed at him from hollows and cracks. He realized there was a way out, if he kept his wits and didn't panic. There were plenty of doorways offering an exit should things become too intense. Realizing it was not an all or nothing situation, Lohbado relaxed and enjoyed the textures of the underground world. It was like entering a temple of earth spirits. As he relaxed, the creatures became friendly. They highly recommended the simple life and laughed at the silliness of trying to proclaim oneself, or attempting to have power over others. They said it's good to stay grounded and rooted in tradition, while growing towards the sun which illuminates infinite space.
