Death & Dying Workshop

Death is a subject that most people do not like to hear about, talk about, or even think about. Why is this? After all, whether we like it or not, each and every one of us will have to die one day. And even before we have to face our own death, we will most probably have to face the deaths of other people— our family members, friends, colleagues, and so forth. Death is a reality, a fact of life, so wouldn’t it be better to approach it with openness and acceptance, rather than fear and denial?

Tibetan Buddhist teacher Geshe Tenzin Zopa will conduct a two-day workshop on death and dying on 5/9/2009 (Saturday) & 6/9/2009 (Sunday) at Chokyi Gyaltsen Centre (CGC), 37-Y Lorong Zoo 1, Air Itam, Penang. He will impart knowledge on how to handle dying and death, using the Buddhist teaching and way.

The Death & Dying workshop will light up the world of darkness which you and I are fearful of since beginnigless time. It will lay out to us the most difficult process in our life, and show us the actual fact that death isn't fearful after all. What is death? How does death happen? The dying process, the difference between clinical death and actual death. Also, what comes after death, and the continuity of mind that takes up one's next rebirth. The workshop will teach you the method on how to deal with the dying person and how to prepare death for oneself.

The workshop comes with a package of materials which include:-
1) Death & Drying Book (355 pages)
2) Sand Mandala Powder
3) Deity and Mantra Card
4) Medicine Buddha's Tsa Tsa

The fee is RM70.00 per participant, which covers the 4 items above.
