“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. This inspiring book helps us to live a happy and meaningful life, to prepare for death and to help others who are dying. In this way, instead of something to be feared or denied, death can become a positive experience.“ from the book, Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully, by Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
One of the few certainties in life is death!
If death were the end of our problems, perhaps we need not be so concerned but, as Buddha taught, for as long as we remain ordinary beings, one life is followed by another as surely as day is followed by night.
Despite the inevitability of our death and the complete uncertainty of its time or manner, few of us give it a moment’s thought until it is too late. Given that many future lives lie ahead and that these will be shaped by our actions in this and previous lives, it does not pay to die unprepared.
In this beautiful course we will learn how coming to terms with our mortality enriches our life and enables us to meet our passing with dignity, confidence, and joy. We will understand how to live a pure, liberating lifestyle in which every moment is meaningful.
We will also learn practices to assist others who are dying.
