This discussion was offered by Gomde CA within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and hosted by sangha members, Rhonda LoPresti and Stephen Barr. In planning for end-of-life as a practitioner, we gathered to share how to contact Gomde California and notify our teachers when death is imminent, how to sponsor prayers at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling (www.monlam.org) , how to add loved ones to our daily prayers, the options of a name-burning ceremony, Buddhist funeral services and options, and more.
We explored and clarified the practices for end-of-life, held an open conversation on primary concerns and supported bringing sickness, old age and dying onto the path.
This discussion is offered each quarter and a recording will be available after the meeting. Next meeting will be May, date and time TBD.
