Banyen's Description: 

Lama Zopa has long envisioned a practical book to inform students of how to help loved ones have a beneficial death. How to Enjoy Death has been compiled from years of Rinpoche’s teachings and has been lovingly edited by Venerable Robina Courtin. Here Lama Zopa provides detailed advice on how best to prepare ourselves to face the inevitable end of our own and our loved ones lives with courage, grace, and a mind free of fear.

When suddenly one day one of your loved ones dies and you don’t know what to do to help, you’ll feel so confused, so lost. This made me think that knowing how to help others at the time of death is such important education to have. By providing the right support, the right environment, you can help your loved one die peacefully, with virtuous thoughts, and thus have a good rebirth.

With great care, Rinpoche explains what to do in the months, weeks, and days that precede death, as well as how to handle the moment itself and the mantras, prayers, and meditations that must follow the death of a loved one. All of the practices one needs to be prepared to face death are handily included between the covers of this thoroughly pragmatic volume, making this an essential reference for Tibetan Buddhist practitioners, caregivers, hospice workers, or chaplains.

This limited edition book includes:

  • 16 full color images, including the Wheel of Life, Buddha Shakyamuni, and more
  • 2 pull-out cards printed with mantras requested specifically by Lama Zopa Rinpochethe full text of essential prayers and rituals
  • 2 ribbon page markers to mark common practices and keep place in your process
  • Beautiful and durable faux leather flexible cover
  • 2-color interior to help you navigate the different practices.

Finally there is the clear light, like dawn in autumn. This is appearing, but there is also the wisdom understanding emptiness… The vision of clear light is totally empty of existing from its own side…

 

While you are holding the mind in this, have another tiny part of your mind look at how your I appears… There’s a way that we usually believe in the I, the self; there’s a certain feeling, a way that we view it…

 

You have to be very skillful, very careful. So, slowly, within the state of the clear light vision, try to check up on this I, this self.

 

Concentrate on that.
