Impermanence, the evident truth that everything is constantly changing, is one of Buddha’s first teachings.We need to become familiar, in particular, with the more radical change – the end of this life and the beginning of another – and ensure that, at the very least, we get another human rebirth after this one in order to continue on our spiritual path.

The process of death is described both from the point of view of the twelve links of dependent arising, laid out in the sutras, and the eight stages described in the Vajrayana.

Discovering Buddhism is an FPMT study program aimed at giving Buddhist and non-Buddhist students a solid footing in the practice of Mahayana Buddhism. The program is not meant to be an academic study of Buddhism, it is meant to change our daily lives through experiential training in meditation and thought transformation.
