H.H. The Dalai Lama - Facing Death and Dying Well

The Meridian Trust is a charity dedicated to preserving Buddhist culture on film and video. The archive holds over 2,500 hours of footage, focusing primarily on the endangered traditions of Tibet. Our archival footage is available to film and documentary makers, as well as Buddhist students and other interested people. Meridian Trust produces and makes available DVD and video programmes of all the major Buddhist traditions through our worldwide distribution network. Mainly focusing on teachings and public talks given by leading Buddhist teachers, especially the Dalai Lama, our patron, we also distribute documentaries and feature films concerned with Buddhist issues.

In the 1980s, at the request of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Meridian Trust began to film many of the old teachers who came out of Tibet before they passed away. This original filming initiative came to be known as the Lama Project; a total of 600 hours of unique footage was recorded.

This programme is approximately 165 minutes long and includes H.H. The Dalai lama teaching about the truth of suffering, the Three Characteristics of Existence and the dissolution of the body’s elements at death. Meditating on impermanence and the momentary changing nature of existence helps us appreciate the basic unsatisfactory nature of existence, and strive towards liberation. Causally produced things all depend on causes and conditions which contain within them the seeds of their own disintegration. His Holiness encourages us to develop our awareness of death and move from gross understanding to more subtle levels. We need to train our mind in virtuous mental states because our state of mind at the moment of our death conditions our next rebirth. Practising developing positive states of mind is therefore of fundamental importance.

This DVD is the latest release in a series of ongoing re-issues that bring the work of the Dalai Lama to a wider audience. These films will form part of a unique and groundbreaking series of films that will be welcomed the world over, not only by those interested in Buddhism but fellow travellers on the road to enlightenment. This DVD is presented in a mixture of Tibetan and English.
