Between birth and death, we lose many things. Not just our keys and our glasses. We lose friendships, jobs, things, and of course, sentient beings. All of these experiences are opportunities to become comfortable with impermanence.
The good news is that we don’t do this alone! Once again, kind and generous people have stepped forward to teach us. This season we learn about the different ways that impermanence touches our lives, and how we can live peacefully, knowing that everything changes.
Was I a bad person in a past life? This is an unanswerable question. And anyway, there is nothing I can do about my past lives. All I can do is work to be the best person that I can be now. The karma that I experience is a blend of my past and current actions
Sitting with Death was born out of curiosity, with the goal of helping us all include death in our Buddhist practices. So that we may all have less suffering, more peace, and the ability to help others through loss.
“These are the five facts that one should reflect on often, whether one is a woman or a man, lay or ordained.” The Five Recollections combine a healthy recognition of impermanence with death awareness.
