Q: If you are near death, but you have a peaceful mind, but your relatives are crying? How do you help them?
A: I think if you put it in a different perspective, like an example, in the long term, every sentient beings will be liberated and to reach enlightenment ultimately, but that’s very many years of many many many many many times of the eons. So I think the best way to help your relative is to make a prayer that you will born again next to them and then saying that ‘I want to have more spiritual awakening and realization so that I can truly liberate them from these difficulties and acceptance of this kind of difficulties that they are facing, and I will benefit them’ and that sense of prayer is needed.
With love and respect from your Kalu Rinpoche
