Reflection on Death and Impermanence

Scene from the Sichuan Earthquake in China, which took place on the 12th May 2008. Over five million people are made homeless with casualty figures exceeding 60,000

Why is it so important to meditate on death? Because, whether you like it or not, death will come. This is explained by Lama Dondrup Dorje in ‘Reflection on Death and Impermanence', the latest audio teaching available to listen to online or as an MP3 download.

Lama Dondrup Dorje explains the disadvantages of not remembering death and impermanence, and the advantages of remembering death and impermanence at all times. Giving numerous examples of many great Masters, he reminds us “The best offering that you can make to the Buddha is to reflect on death and impermanence.”

Lama Dondrup Dorje also guides us through a ‘Nine-pointed meditation on Death’, through which an understanding of the certainty of death, and the uncertainty of the hour of death can be reached. He goes on to emphasise the urgent need to abandon attachment to mundane concerns so that one may begin to implement Dharma practice into daily life for the purpose of attaining two-fold fulfilment for both oneself and others, while we still enjoy the personal and circumstantial endowments of a precious human life.
