Preparations for Dying with Confidence
- 5 days of teachings and empowerment
26th june - 30th June 2019
The aim of these teachings is so you will know how you should react, and be confident of the proces of dying. It also refers to how you should practice and connect this with your present life situations. This way you make yurself familiar with the process and are able to die i a happy confident way. Dying is an important practice, which makes your next destination, and should be used as your path to enlightenment.
Rinpoche will also bestow the associated empowerment of 100 peaceful and wrathful dieties (Shitro) related to the teachings found in the classic Bardo Thodrol (Tibetan Book of the Dead).
This empowerment is rarely given, so it is an extraordinary oppotunity.
Receiving the empowerment purifies broken Samayas (commitments) and helps one go through the Bardo stages without fear and in full trust of recognizing the 100 peaceful and wrathful deities. It is considered just to recieve the blessings of the empowerment can help practitioners at the time of death, and it is said that even hearing the name of the 100 deities closes the door to rebith in lower realms.

All teachings will be given in English. There will be no translation.
