In Buddhism, Death and Dying is seen as a very important part of life. Knowing that death is a certainty and that the timing is unknown makes us realise that the life we have is precious and will not last long.
Moreover, we will continue to see loved ones pass away during our life. Knowing what happens at death and how to care for the dying during and after this process will help all to prepare for the inevitable.
In this day-long teaching, Lama Choedak Rinpoche will elucidate on death, dying and will also give the transmission of Amogapasha (a form of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara). He will conduct and teach all participants how to perform a SOOR ceremony, a traditional Buddhist Ceremony to help the deceased.
This will be the most useful spiritual awakening for all how to prepare for their own death as well as what to do to help when the loved ones die. Tibetan Buddhists do this practice for forty-nine days after a loved one passes to help all connected with the death.
Not knowing what to do when one suffers from a loss can have devastating effects. To combat this, learning and knowing how to do this practice can empower oneself and all to live mindfully every day, make preparation for the inevitable, and grow strong for the benefit of all.
