    Dying Well According To Tibetan Buddhism

    We all want to live well, yet how many of us think about dying well. It's a subject that is somewhat taboo and makes people uncomfortable many times, but it's one that the sooner we face it, the sooner we can do something to make it more comfortable.

    Being a 10 year practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism myself I can share my teacher has told me that all of my practice is really for the last five minutes of my life. I completely have come to agree, and I also feel learning to face my own death and that I developed beliefs that comfort me about what comes afterwards has made all the difference.

    I have been reading a great book over the last few years and it's called "The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche.

    This book is so touching to me in the lessons it speaks of regarding having love and compassion for all the beings of the universe, and how to live in a deep and serene way and also how to face death with courage and wisdom. The book gives wonderful and practical examples on how to train ourselves for the easiest transition possible and more over how to be of use to our fellow beings in their transition to what comes next. I am learning that service to others is one of the great sources of our own happiness and salvation.
