In this handbook Lama Zopa Rinpoche gives a huge amount of advice about how to help our loved ones before, during, and after death.

This 400 page book, compiled and edited by Ven. Robina Courtin, takes much of the material in FPMT’s How to Face Death without Fear  and Heart Advice for Death and Dying, but radically restructures and reorganizes it into an easy-to-use manual.

The book is available for free from here, but please consider a donation if you decide to download it: https://fpmt.org/projects/make-a-donation/

 

For a Buddhist, the ideal way to die is to die gradually, contrary to an often-stated view that it’s best to die in our sleep so that we don’t know about it. And the reason is clear: given that most of us live in denial of this natural event, our loved ones need time to get ready for death, at peace and unafraid, so that they can, indeed, go happily to their next rebirth, either a precious human rebirth in which they can continue to practice their spiritual path or rebirth in a pure land, such as Buddha Amitabha’s, in which they can easily become a buddha and thus be qualified to perfectly help others.
