April 14 All Day Program on Death, Dying and the Intermediate State Pt 3
Tibetan Buddhism has special teachings for working with death and the process of rebirth. The aim of these teachings is to ease and eliminate the pain of dying and have the best possible outcome for our next life. Our bodies deteriorate and die but our minds are beyond birth and death. Death is actually an opportunity to positively influence the circumstances of our next life. This talk covered working with others who are dying and the family and friends of the person facing death. The main emphasis on the Mahayana approach to death and dying found in the mind training tradition. Lama Yeshe also covered working with grief.
