Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully

In these Sunday morning classes we explore Buddha’s profound yet practical teachings on life and death.

These classes will explore the Buddhist methods to live a happy and meaningful life through understanding the impermanence of our life, and thereby preparing us for our own death and to help others who are dying.

Using the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully, by renowned Buddhist Master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoch, we will learn:
How to make the most of our human life
What happens when we die
How to face our own death without fear
How to help others who are dying or who have died

Mastering the insights, meditations and spiritual practices in Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully will enable us to meet our death with grace, clarity, and fearlessness, attain a pure rebirth, and experience happiness in all our future lives.
