A 3-day retreat with Ven. Sangye Khadro

Buddhist perspectives on dying that help us to live with love, compassion, and forgiveness.

Death is something we all inevitably encounter in lifeWe ourselves will die one day, and even before that occurs we will experience the deaths of those close to us: family, friends, pets, and so on.

Buddhism encourages us to face death rather than try to avoid it, as it can be a great teacher of profound and meaningful truths, and an opportunity to truly open our hearts and learn loving-kindness, compassion, and forgiveness.

We are also encouraged to prepare for death by living mindfully and ethically, and by learning practices that can help us remain calm and positive during the process of dying.

In this 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 retreat is suitable for beginners as well as long-term meditators. Material in this course will review and expand on last year’s retreat of the same title.

California-born, Ven. Sangye Khadro ordained as a Buddhist nun at Kopan Monastery in Nepal  in 1974, and took the full (bhikshuni) ordination in 1988. She has studied Buddhism with many great masters including  Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Lama Yeshe, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey, and Khensur Jampa Tegchok. She  began teaching in 1979 and was a resident teacher at Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore for 11 years. She is the author several books, including How to Meditate, now in its 17th printing.
