We are alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence, yet very few of us have really come to terms with this fact. Buddha gave extensive teachings on the death process, and on how to use an awareness of our death to live a fuller and meaningful life.
On this course we will also learn what happens at the time of death. This knowledge helps us to reduce our fear of it.
We will briefly explore a practice called Powa or transference of consciousness. Powa practice explains clearly how we can face our own death, and how we can help those who are dying. This is one of the kindest things we can do for our self and for others. Please see our online prayers page for regular opportunities to engage in these powerful prayers via livestream.
