Advice and Mantras for Death and Dying

In this issue


The main thing is to take care of the dying person's mind. Many others can take care of the body, but we can take care of the mind. The most worthwhile thing to do is to inspire the person to think of others with loving kindness and compassion, to wish others to be happy and free from suffering. If a person dies with the thought of benefiting others, the mind is naturally happy and this makes the person’s death meaningful.
