Geshe Sherab will discuss how we can prepare for ageing and death – and also how we can be helpful and give spiritual support to others at their last moments in this life.
He will describe the external and internal signs of death, known as death process – experienced by Tibetan meditators – and give tools on how to prepare for a peaceful death. It is possible and important to familiarise ourselves with this process and to meditate on it.
Geshe Sherab will also describe our innate human potential, the so called Buddha nature, and give advice how we can nourish and actualise it.
As we prepare for everything else in life; we prepare to move, to change jobs, to marry, to divorce e t c, we c a n also prepare ourselves to that situation in life with aging and death – and make the most out of it. So when it happens we are ready.
We all know death is definite – intellectually. But emotionally we tend to cling to permanence. Even talk about death tends to make us uncomfortable.That is why, when someone we know dies we are very shocked and we suffer a lot.
The certainty of impermanence and our own death needs to sink into our hearts and permeate our daily actions. Understanding impermanence and death is in fact instrumental in making life most meaningful, and more enjoyable for ourselves and for others. Thinking about death and impermanence can really help us see clearer what is important in life, and helps us make correct priorities.
Geshe Sherab teaches in English in a very down to earth and humorous manner, bringing clarity to even the most difficult topics.
