Senior Lama Teachings Series 5: Preparing to Die, Learning to Live
April 3, 2021 @ 5:45 pm – 8:00 pm +0545
Samye is delighted to announce the fifth in our Senior Lama Teaching Series, comprising online teachings and question-and-answer sessions featuring our learned druplas (retreat masters) in the Chokling Tersar tradition.
This fifth teaching, “Preparing to Die, Learning to Live,” featuring Tulku Migmar Tsering, explores how to understand, contemplate, and work with the reality of death and thereby live a meaningful life. This will include advice on how to prepare for our own dying and death, and how to be supportively present to the death and dying of others.
Phakchok Rinpoche often encourages us to reflect on impermanence to fearlessly prepare for death. In relation to this and to Tulku’s upcoming teaching, Samye’s Noble Living, Noble Caring, Noble Dying team would like to share The Noble Sutra on Teaching the Eleven Perceptions. Tulku will read through this concise sutra and we encourage you to download it in the language of your choice and to return to it regularly for reflection. Tulku Migmar, in this teaching, will give personal advice on how to live wisely and compassionately so as to face death without fear.
Please consider submitting questions on these themes for Tulku-la to answer.
We rejoice at this opportunity and look forward to seeing you at the fifth event in our series of teachings by senior lamas in the Chokling Tersar tradition!

About Tulku Migmar
Tulku Migmar Tsering is a master of the Chokling New Treasures lineage of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He was born in Nubri, Nepal in 1975 and began his training at an early age after having been recognized as a reincarnate lama. Tulku-la completed a three-year retreat under the close guidance of his root guru, the renowned Dzogchen master, Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche.
He has received extensive teachings and empowerments from Kyabje Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, Kyabje Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche, and then went on to study for six years in the Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Shedra or Monastic College. Phakchok Rinpoche has appointed him the senior lama and supporting teacher for his sangha based upon his wonderful qualities as a lama and his strong capacity and desire to help others.
