About the Course

Death Meditation Retreat with Gen Kelsang Tonglam

30 November – 2 December at Kadoorie Centre, Shek Kong

‘I may die today’. Although we know this intellectually, we never think it will happen to us. It leads us in the wrong direction and causes our human life to become empty.

In this retreat, Gen Tonglam will step by step guide us to meditate on every aspect of our impermanence based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s book, Joyful Path of Good Fortune.

Through knowing the truth of our death, we will joyfully put effort into entering the path to liberation by practicing Dharma purely now.

This retreat will be conducted in English. The retreat will start on Friday 8pm and finish on Sunday 1pm.
