Under the guidance of H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya, 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 can be request for 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 fulfilled.
