(No useful words here, I am afraid, so) :heart: :heart: :heart:
To offer care and affection to sentient beings
In desperate situations who lack protection
Brings just as much merit as the meditation
On emptiness with compassion as its core—
So it has been said by glorious Lord Atisha.

Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche

If you cannot generate an altruistic mind, even extensive retreat will be of not much benefit.

Sorry for your loss. It is good that he has a filial brother like you. I hope the funeral goes well.

I'm sorry for your loss, I can't imagine how I'd feel if my brother dies before I do. I might be weak, but I think I'd prefer to die first before my family members.
The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.

Thank you to everybody for their well-wishes and condolences.

Given more than 40 days have passed since his death his consciousness has moved on and so this thread can be put to rest too.
