The first chapter of Ntogn's Tome is a sonic interpretation of the Bardo Thödol, also known as The Tibetan Book of the Dead. This 1300 year old book is a funerary text that tells the life cycle of our souls.

Shinay is our soul's lifetime in physical form, encapsulating two other bardos: Milam (Dreams) and Samten (Meditation). The Shinay bardo lasts until our consciousness or mindstream leaves our body on death. We then enter Chikkhai, the death transit, in which we experience the 'clear light', followed by unconsciousness and the Chönyid bardo: A series of dream or trance-like visions and auditory sensations that each being experiences differently based on their remaining karmas, particularly their intense aversions or desires. After this powerful illumination, we finally enter the last bardo: Sidpa, where we instigate the process of becoming or being reborn.
