Tibetan Way of Preparing for Death
This morning (Sunday Aug 3) we went to Ruan Roi Chanam to participate in a forum on how to take care of terminally ill patients and how to prepare for death. The forum was organized by Buddhika Volunteers Network, who has been engaged in end of life care.
We sat in a round table opening our heart and mind with each other. It was a beautiful session, because each of us who came to the forum wanted to help patients.
Yontan talked about his experience witnessing his monk uncle pass away. He said, “Death came so natural to him. There was no suffering or pain. And he was fully aware of what happened. At that time, I thought: Dharma practice is such a remarkable thing.”
We talked about so many topics including Dzogchen and bardo.The session was scheduled for one and a half hour. But we went on till noon and over lunch. Thanks to all the participants who brought me inspiration and encouraged me to go on sharing my knowledge on Tibetan spirituality with others.
