”Sjukdom, lidande och död Ă€r en reell del av verkligheten i den mĂ€nskliga existensen. Det skulle vara dumt att lĂ„tsas att vi inte Ă€r sjuka nĂ€r vi Ă€r det, att förneka möjligheten att kunna bli frisk, eller lĂ„tsas att vi aldrig kommer att dö. ” – Dalai Lama

 

De flesta av oss lever i förnekelse av döden. Men det Àr oundvikligt att vi nÄgon gÄng i livet kommer att uppleva förlusten av nÀra och kÀra. Det Àr ocksÄ oundvikligt att sjÀlv uppleva döden en dag. Den buddhistiska lÀran erbjuder praktiska riktlinjer för hur man odlar en medvetenhet om förgÀnglighet och döden, som hjÀlper oss stÀrka vÄr andliga utövning. Genom att acceptera döden som en del av vÄr naturliga existens kan vi bÀttre hantera sorgen nÀr vi förlorar en kÀr person, likasÄ kan det hjÀlpa oss att förbereda oss inför vÄr egen död.

 

I denna endagskurs introducerar Venerable Michael nÄgra meditationstekniker kring medvetenhet om döden och den faktiska dödsprocessen sÄ som den beskrivs i de buddhistiska texterna. Det kommer Àven att finnas tid för frÄgor och diskussioner.

——————ENGLISH——————

“Illness, suffering and death are part of the reality of human existence. It would be foolish to pretend that we are not sick when we are, or that we will never die, as it would be to deny the possibility of ever getting well.” – The Dalai Lama

 

Most of us live in denial of death. However, it is inevitable that we experience the loss of a loved one at some stage in our lives. It is also inevitable that we ourselves experience death someday. The Buddhist teachings offer practical guidelines on how to cultivate an awareness of impermanence and death, which helps to strengthen our spiritual practice. By accepting death as part of our natural existence, we can better deal with grief when we lose a dear one, likewise it can help prepare for one’s own death.

 

In this one day course Venerable Michael will introduce some meditation techniques on the awareness of death and the actual death process as explained in the Buddhist texts. There will also be time for questions and discussion.
