A Glimpse into the Retreat
Hosted by the revered Kuluta Buddhist Centre, this retreat is a sanctuary for both seasoned meditation practitioners and curious newcomers. It provides a safe space to explore one’s thoughts and feelings about life’s most significant moments and the inevitable experience of death.
But why “Living Meaningfully” and “Dying Joyfully”?
To live meaningfully is to engage with every moment with purpose, understanding, and mindfulness. It is about cherishing every breath, every interaction, and every experience. When we live with meaning, we cultivate positive actions, engage in genuine relationships, and direct our lives towards beneficial goals.
To die joyfully might sound paradoxical to many. However, in the Buddhist perspective, understanding and preparing for death is not morbid but rather a natural progression of life. It’s about acceptance, readiness, and the belief that death can be a transition to a more profound state of consciousness.
