THIS A IS A LOW RES GOOD AUDIO DOCUMENTATION OF MOST OF THE PERFORMANCES AT THE Memorial includes Laurie Anderson, Mo Tucker, John Cale , Patti Smith , Debbie Harry, Paul Simon, Antony, John Zorn, Jenny Muldar, Lenny Kaye , Mark Ribot, Hal Wilner + others , .I made it for myself and share it with all LOU fans who were not able to attend Let me put the memorial into context : In the Buddhist tradition it takes days 49 days for the spirit to leave the body.It is called "bardo." Like Jewish Shiva, Irish wakes and different cultural rituals, it is a time for the living to share stories and simply just sit together to help each other and most importantly help the spirit be fully freed into into the Cosmos, December 16 was the fiftieth day and at the Apollo Theater a celebration of Lou Reed's life and work took place with his friends and family gathered with his wife the artist Laurie Anderson all saying goodbye, good speed Lou
BARDO: In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the 49th Day Ceremony is a way to ease that longing. A brief liturgy of readings and ritual offers loved ones the chance to let go. But equally important is what the ceremony means to the deceased. The 49th Day observance commemorates entry into reincarnation.The ceremony marks the end of a period called the bardo. The word literally means gap or in-between state . In Tibetan Buddhism, the bardo is the 49-day transition period between death and rebirth. This period is considered an opportune time for one's ``pure consciousness,'' which continues after death, to work toward enlightenment by confronting the wrathful and peaceful energies that are part of one's karma.
