Death and Dying: A Buddhist Perspective

with Gen Kelsang Suma

We are alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence. But how many of us have ever stopped to consider what it actually means, or how we can come to terms with our own death?

In this class we will look at Buddha’s teachings on death and dying, exploring in particular how we personally can prepare to die with grace and clarity. We will also look at some practical ways of helping those who are approaching death to do so as peacefully as possible.
