Föreningen för tibetansk buddhism i Göteborg, Sweden,
Online -Course on Living and Dying
with Ven. Sungrab Woeser
All beings, phenomena, situations, thoughts and feelings are in constant change. Buddha’s wisdom explained that there is a constant flow of arising, abiding and disappearing. All depending on karma, causes and conditions. Buddha also taught us where to find ground and meaning in this relative existence. In this course we will learn about the relative state of existence and also practice various meditations related to impermanence and death. We will talk about the moment of death, the signs of death, how to make dying meaningful and peaceful. Not for ourselves alone, but also in the presence of others in the process of dying.
We will learn more about the final merging of the ultimate and the relative mind at the moment of death, and also of the path of liberation in the bardo state. This topic will also be deepened in the course by meditation practice.
- The ‘Tibetan Book of living and dying’ by Sogyal rinpoche, will be used as a guidebook during the course.
- The four noble Truths.
- Parting from the four attachments, a short teaching spoken by Manjushri to the Sakya Sachen Kunga Nyingpo
- Tibetan Book of the Dead (BardoThödol)
