Embracing Death as a Spiritual Path

See all series

Date: 2007-10-02


The Buddha said that just as the footprint of the elephant was the greatest of all animals, so too was the meditation on death the greatest of all spiritual practices. What does it mean to use death as our spiritual practice and what changes can we expect when we venture into this subject? The evolution of death awareness includes the stage of self-preservation, the stage of universal death, and the stage of inquiry into who dies. Through dharma talks, hospice stories, homework, and discussions, we will investigate how to gently integrate our lives with our inevitable death.
