I attended a Tibetan Buddhist Workshop on Death and Dying. This was facilitated by Murshida (movewithmurshida.com) at a retreat center in East San Diego County. In addition to extensive meditation and yoga we were taught the Phowa Course of Buddhist teachings of our spiritual existence.
My takeaway so far is this:
We are Light and Space all bundled up in desires, passions and aspirations.
These teachings are consistent with our current understandings of physics.
When I couple these teachings with Yogananda’s wisdom:
“Gone forever, the fitful flickering shadows of mortal memory”,
Then I am able to enjoy creating our life in the present.
Always something to learn.
