Death and Dying with Ven. Steve Carlier via Zoom

Thursdays starting March 16 8:00am - 9:30am PT


“The most important and best way to benefit others is to develop your heart and mind on the path to enlightenment. When you complete the path to enlightenment you will be fully qualified to liberate numberless sentient beings from oceans of samsaric suffering and bring them to full enlightenment. This is what sentient beings need and this is what is most beneficial for them. There is no greater success than this. This depends upon your actualizing the path to enlightenment by meditating on the lam-rim.”

LamaTsonghkhapaThe celebrated system of teachings known as the Stages of the Path (lamrim), written by the great medieval Tibetan Buddhist Saint, Lama Tsongkhapa, represents a synthesis of the entire path to enlightenment. Presented in a clear and concise form, these teachings are easy to understand and apply in meditation. Instruction begins with the preliminary practices, and then progresses through the essential practices of the ‘beings of the three scopes’, including correct guru devotion, renunciation, the altruistic wish for enlightenment and the view of the middle way.

About the Course:

Join us for the next series on Death and Dying from the Middle Length Lam Rim text by Philip Quarcoo. This series is designed to provide participants with a deep understanding of the Buddhist perspective on death and dying. We will explore various topics, such as the impermanence of life, the stages of dying, and the importance of preparing for death. This series is open to anyone interested in exploring the topic of death from a Buddhist perspective and is an excellent opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of this fundamental aspect of life.


This is a great opportunity to study the Middle-Length Lam-Rim online via Zoom with Land of Medicine Buddha’s senior monk, Venerable Steve Carlier.  This is the next installment of several  Zoom series with Ven. Steve, devoted to a gradual study of the Middle-Length Lam-Rim.

*Please note, due to the open ended and flexible nature of this class, attendance of these sessions does not count towards a completion card for the FPMT Basic Program.
