During the Death and Caring for the Dying Retreat, Venerable Thubten Chodron gave this teaching on the “Amitabha Buddha” chanting practice that is done at Sravasti Abbey.

  • We pay homage to the qualities of an enlightened being, not an external being that will whisk you away at the time of death
  • A pure land is a state of mind
  • The importance of focusing on practicing bodhicitta in the relationships we have now
  • When we die we experience other things that are projections of our minds
