Under the guidance of H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang, volunteers from the Next of Kin Committee assembled a packet of information to assist Tibetan Buddhists practitioners in deciding their end-of-life wishes. We will discuss what prayers can be requested 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.
Laura Ellis has been a student of H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Dorje Chang and H.E. Dagmo Kusho Sakya since 2002. She currently chairs the Monastery’s Next of Kin Committee, a group which supports Buddhist practitioners in planning for and fulfilling their Buddhist end-of-life wishes.
