A Buddhist Perspective on Death &
What Comes After
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 half day workshop, Gen Tilopa will give teachings based on the book “Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully” by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. This text shows us how coming to terms with our mortality enriches our life and enables us to meet our passing with dignity, confidence, and joy. He teaches us how to live a pure, liberating lifestyle in which every moment is meaningful.
