The 'painful' bardo of dying (Skt. mumūrṣāntarābhava; Wyl. 'chi kh gnad gcod kyi bar do) — one of the four or six bardos.

Teachings on the bardo of dying usually contain the instructions for phowa practice.

'Root Verse' for the Bardo of Dying by Padmasambhava

ཀྱེ་མ་བདག་ལ་འཆི་ཁ་བར་དོ་འཆར་དུས་འདིར༔
ཀུན་ལ་ཆགས་སེམས་ཞེན་འཛིན་སྤངས་བྱས་ལ༔
གདམས་ངག་གསལ་བའི་ལམ་ལ་མ་གཡེང་འཇུག༔
རང་རིག་སྐྱེ་མེད་ནམ་མཁའི་དབྱིངས་སུ་འཕང༔
འདུས་བྱས་ཤ་ཁྲག་ལུས་དང་བྲལ་ལ་ཁད༔
མི་རྟག་སྒྱུ་མ་ཡིན་པར་ཤེས་པར་བྱ༔


Now when the bardo of dying dawns upon me,
I will abandon all grasping, yearning, and attachment,
Enter undistracted into clear awareness of the teaching,
And eject my consciousness into the space of unborn rigpa;
As I leave this compound body of flesh and blood
I will know it to be a transitory illusion.
