Buddhadharma : Summer 2007
summer 2007| 24 |buddhadharma Are You Ready for Death? What we see as the worst crisis of our lives is actually a wonderful opportunity to discover enlightened mind, says The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. He tells us how to prepare for death now in order to take advantage of this greatest of all gaps. Whether or not we are prepared, we will all meet the Lord of Death. Who is this great Lord and what is his power over us? This legendary figure that inspires so much fear is merely the personification of impermanence and cause and effect, or karma. In Buddhist literature, this Lord is invincible. No one can beat him at his game, except a true holder of wisdom. It is wisdom that slays the slayer. Ultimately, what we call life is just an illusion of continuity – a succession of moments; a stream of thoughts, emotions, and memories, which we feel the Dzogchen PonloP RinPoche is a lama anD scholaR in the nyingma anD Kagyu schools of tibetan buDDhism. he is the founDeR anD sPiRitual DiRec- toR of nalanDaboDhi, an inteRnational oRganization baseD in seattle, anD the authoR of numeRous booKs, incluDing Wild AWAkening: The heArT of MAhAMudrA And dzogchen. this aRticle is aDaPteD fRom his most Recent WoRK, Mind Beyond deATh, PublisheD by snoW lion Publications, 2007.
