“One of the greatest acts of kindness that we can show someone is to help them to die peacefully and with a virtuous mind.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully

We are alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence, yet very few of us have really come to terms with this fact. Just as it is true for us, so it is true for others, including our family members, those we love, our friends and our enemies. These classes will focus on understanding the process of death and how to help those who are going through that process.

“Material objects such as gifts, money or food may produce temporary happiness, but, depending on how we use them, may also produce suffering, and so we cannot say that their main function is to produce happiness. A virtuous phenomenon, however, can only cause happiness; it can never cause pain.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully

Having been born as a human being we have immense freedom to accomplish almost anything we want. With so much freedom, we need to ask ourself what is the most meaningful way to use our life. What will make us truly happy? What will benefit others most? And when this life is over, what will help us then? These classes will introduce basic meditations and ways of thinking that will make our lives truly meaningful, and lead to real happiness. Start at the beginning of the series if you can, but if you miss the beginning, then start when you are able.
