In these 57 weekly Sunday morning teachings from January 2012 to February 2013, Gelek Rimpoche introduces Buddha's transformative message through the goals and methods of Tibetan Buddhism, helping us to see, session by session, the personal applicability of Buddha's life-changing realizations for our lives today.
Life is impermanent, be prepared
In this talk, Gelek Rimpoche reacts to the death of singer Whitney Houston. He points out the fragility of our life and asks what we can we do if we only have six months to live. Reincarnation is a distinct possibility by looking at twins who bring their habitual patterns with them from a previous life. The task ahead then, says Rimpoche, is to minimize our negative addictions and instill as much positivity in our life as possible by using meditation as a tool. In the final Q and A, Rimpoche urges us to use any fear of death to get prepared, so that when death comes we can be confident and ready, without hesitation.
