On the occasion of a student passing away in 2010, Sogyal Rinpoche gave this simple, yet intimate teaching on how to practice the essential phowa, a practice we can do to help those who have died.

In presenting the practice of the essential phowa in Chapter 13 of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, Sogyal Rinpoche had this to say :

“I want to emphasize that this is a practice that anyone at all can do. It is simple, but it is also the most essential practice we can do to prepare for our own death, and it is the main practice I teach my students for helping their dying friends and relatives, and their loved ones who have already died.”
