Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has been in Thailand for a little over a week, giving talks, retreats and workshops at various venues.
He has a warm and light manner of speaking, that has really struck and impressed the listeners here in Bangkok. We really appreciate his vigour in giving so much of himself for the community here.

Could not be easier – go down Sukhumvit Soi One, right to the end, and Ariyasom is on the left.

On the topic of dying gracefully, I would like to hear something regarding those left behind. I would really like to ask how someone with no particuar beliefs about the afterlife or reincarnation can come to terms with their own or a loved one’s death — especially if the loved one’s life has been a bit of a case of “life is unfair”. To just try to neutralise one’s attachment to the person doesn’t seem right to me, and I doubt I could do it anyway. Can there be any rejoicing in the face of possible oblivion after a hard life? Maybe I’m asking too much!
I would like to hear about how to help non Buddhists with their dying process, compassionately and appropriately. Looking forward to this topic.
