Duration 46:38

Questions answered during our Q&A session:

3:29 As a Buddhist, I’m confused by the variety of end-of-life experiences. My 95-year-old mother has been in hospice care at home for a while. She has Alzheimer’s. She clearly sees my father and lots of other people whom we can’t see. There’s an organization called which comforts people by sharing documented experiences of thousands of loved ones of the dying. I know my father is still around, because he has left signs for us. My family are not Buddhists. I took an online course on The Tibetan Book of the Dead taught by Pema Chödrön. She couldn’t answer the questions about deceased people sending signs or visiting. What do you think?

31:09 Lately I’ve been doing a deep dive into Buddhist mantras. There are so many! Which mantras should we recite? Where and when? Do you have any favorite mantras?
