Death & Impermanence
In Great Beyond Sorrow Sutra Buddha says: ‘When many different animals have been in the field and have left their footprints, we see it is the elephant who leaves the deepest footprint. In a similar way, when we have practiced many different meditations we shall experience their effects; but it is the meditation on death that makes the deepest impression on our mind’.
Meditation on death is the doorway to pure and powerful spiritual practice.
It liberates us from the worries and concerns of this life and it inspires us to make the most of every moment of our life in a meaningful way.
For those who possess death awareness, it is their wise spiritual guide.
On this day retreat, Resident Teacher, Kadam Mick Marcon will explain how to meditate on death and how to use death awareness to solve our daily problems and give energy to our spiritual practice.
