The Transference of Consciousness



“From the Buddhist point of view, human life and death are equally important events. There’s no reason to think that life is important and death is bad, unimportant. You should not think that way. Both are important.”

Lama Yeshe’s teachings on the transference of consciousness at death are particularly poignant as these were from the last teachings Lama gave in the West; he passed away some five months later.  These teachings have been published by LYWA as “Life, Death and After Death” and are drawn from teachings given by Lama in London, 1982 and Geneva, 1983.
