|When death comes, many westerners count on their teachers to assist them with prayers and practice, yet we may not have had a chance to talk with them about this. Perhaps we understand the process of transition, but not how and what the lama actually does, and what we can do for ourselves. Here is an opportunity to clarify our questions about the most profound experience of our lifetime, and to hear how other contemporary practitioners have successfully died “as professionals”, in the words of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche. Lama Gyaltsen will help us gain confidence as we approach the bridge we each will cross.
