🌞We invite you on Tuesday, March 28th, between 18:00 – 20:00 (Romanian time) to take part in the meeting with the venerable Buddhist monk Losang Gyaltsen, who will talk about Life, death and after death from a Buddhist point of view.

Buddhism recognizes that there is a continuous cycle of life, death and rebirth. This cycle is known as samsara. The ultimate aim of Buddhist practice is to become free from samsara.
When we die we are reborn into another life. Tibetan Buddhists believe that there is an in-between stage known as the bardo which can take up to 49 days.
Within Buddhism, rebirth can take six possible forms, the highest or lowest: gods, demi-gods, humans, animals, hungry ghosts and hell creatures.
A person’s rebirth is dependent on previous thoughts and actions. Each intentional action, good or bad, gives rise to karma. Good karma will allow for a good rebirth and vice versa. The last moments of a person’s life are important because the last thoughts and feelings will be a deciding factor in conditioning the first moment of the next life.

⏳“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.” ~ Ven. Robina Courtin ⏳
