Event description
What happens at death-time? How can we best prepare ourselves for the onward journey? And how can we insure we achieve a positive rebirth?

About this event

It is only by reflecting on change and impermanence that we can use our present life to its fullest potential. Explore the process of death and rebirth and its impact on how we live our lives. Be guided in skilful reflection on the meaning of death and what to expect at death-time.

In this way, fulfil your purpose in life, resolve conflicts, and develop the skills to help both yourself and others at the time of death. Eventually, through Buddhist practice, one can overcome fear and death altogether.

Topics in the Course

  • Disadvantages of not thinking about death and the advantages of doing so
  • Avoiding the trap of the 8 worldly concerns
  • Nine-part meditation on death awareness
  • Eight stages of the dying process
  • Process of rebirth (and how to avoid the sufferings of the lower realms)
  • The role of karma in determining rebirth
  • The six realms of existence
  • How to help the dying
  • Subtle and gross impermanence
  • Dharma is the long term solution to death

About the Presenter

Eddie Peet has been teaching at Langri Tangpa Centre since 1997. Not shy of life’s dirty reality, several tragic life experiences brought Eddie to Buddhism. He first met the Dharma when he attended meditation classes at Karuna Hospice Service. Eddie is a registered western teacher within the FPMT, and has attended advanced study programs in Buddhist Philosophy and practice. He has read almost every book in our library. Just ask him about the topic you are interested in, and he can point you the right direction!
