Peaceful Living, Peaceful Dying
with Ven. Sangye Khadr0

June 11- July 2

Tuesdays, 7 – 8:30 pm Eastern Time

Death is something all of us will inevitably encounter in life. We ourselves will die one day and, before that occurs, we will experience the death of loved ones. The Buddha frequently encouraged his followers to contemplate death as this would help them live a more positive and meaningful life and be better prepared for death when it happens.

In this four week Zoom course, we will explore Buddhist perspectives on death and dying, as well as practices to prepare for our own death and help others who are dying. The course includes teachings, meditations, and time for question-and-answers.
