Generally, death is a taboo subject. Many people do not want to think about their own mortality. Is this a wise strategy? Since death is inevitable how will we be able to die peacefully if we fear and avoid investigating the subject? All we shall succeed in doing is ensuring that our own death comes we will be miserable. We will be conditioned by fear, uncertainty, and pleading not to die. Those that have witnessed loved ones die, believe that since the deceased’s body shows the aspect of relaxation that this indicates a peaceful death. However, the truth is we have no idea what they were actually thinking or feeling as death descended upon them. Therefore, it is most prudent and wise to investigate and prepare for death well before its time of arrival. This strategy will ensure a  peaceful death.

2600 years ago Buddha Shakyamuni revealed the entire path to liberation and enlightenment. His teachings have been put into practice by millions of people and many have attained liberation and enlightenment. We too can gain permanent happiness and freedom from suffering as those before us. However, it is necessary to receive Buddha’s special blessings of empowerment, and then strive to improve our mind according to Buddha’s instructions. In this way we shall definitely be able to fulfill all of our own and others wishes.

This year the Deputy Spiritual Director of the NKT-IKBU, Gen-la Jampa will be offering the empowerment of Buddha Vajrapani. Buddha Vajrapani is the embodiment of all the spiritual power of all enlightened beings. Spiritual power has many aspects, but one aspect is the ability to endure mental and physical hardship with a positive attitude. Since it is very difficult to avoid hardship and problems in our day to day life, we definitely need the help and protection of Buddha Vajrapani.
