Where there is birth, there will also be death. You know this. But do you really connect with it, embrace it, live it and welcome it into your practice? Welcome to Death Dhamma. A place where death will be your teacher. Together we will explore how the ultimate impermanence can strengthen our practice and improve the quality of our lives.
Margaret Meloni, PhD is a Theravada Buddhist practitioner, businessperson, and the author of Carpooling with Death: How living with Death will make you Stronger, Wiser and Fearless. One day, while navigating the demands of everyday life; she realized that more significant challenges were coming her way. She began to realize that the people she loved were going to die. Her mother-in-law, Lee, was in her 90s, her parents were approaching their 80s, and her husband, Ed, had already outlived his father. She had already said goodbye to others.
She began to wonder, “How can I handle losing the people I love the most?” The answer to her question came from her reliance on her Buddhist practice. Now that she has made friends with death, her goal is to help all of us to accept death as an essential part of life.
Death Dhamma is published monthly.
