Introduction to the Next of Kin Guide

Saturday, April 3
Time: 4:30 – 6:00 pm
Location: Cultural Hall
All are welcome

Under the guidance of HHJDS Rinpoche, volunteers from the Next of Kin Committee have assembled a packet of information to assist Sakya Monastery members in deciding their end-of-life wishes. We will go over what prayers to request at the time of death, how to handle the body according to Tibetan Buddhist protocols, what legal forms need to be filled out prior to death, and how to make arrangements with your Next of Kin to have your end-of-life wishes as a Buddhist fulfilled.

This is also an opportunity to sign up as a Vigil Volunteer. Vigil volunteers recite prayers in continuous shifts for people who are sick, having surgery or dying.
