Free dharma resources on death

Post by Könchok Thrinley »

I think it could be a good idea to start a thread to share some free online resources about death and dying.

My picks are these two:

Garchen Rinpoche’s Instructions for Dying
A downloadable book written and assembled by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche, rich with instruction, images and prayers to help us through the bardo of death, to help those in the process of dying, and help us deal with grief and loss.
(Pdf file included in this post)

Living is Dying – How to Prepare for Dying, Death and Beyond
“Shouldn’t we all try to contemplate the inevitability of our own death at least once this lifetime? Particularly as every one of us will die – itself a crucially important piece of information. Doesn’t putting some effort into processing the inescapable fact of our own death make sense?”
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

“Observing samaya involves to remain inseparable from the union of wisdom and compassion at all times, to sustain mindfulness, and to put into practice the guru’s instructions”. Garchen Rinpoche

Stages of death and body dissolution as per the Hayagriva Buddhist Centre
(It is not the only view or model out there, but good for consultation purposes nonetheless).
