Just want to share with all of you on the purpose of the public forum, which is reflected best in the words of Sogyal Rinponche in his book, The Tibetan book of Living and Dying.

“One of the things I hope for... is that doctors all over the world will take extremely seriously the need to allow the dying person to die in silence and serenity... to find ways to make the very difficult transition of death as easy, painless, and peaceful as possible. Peaceful death is really an essential human right, more essential perhaps even than the right to vote or the right to justice; it is a right on which, all religious traditions tell us, a great deal depends for the well-being and spiritual future of the dying person. There is no greater gift of charity you can give than helping a person to die well.”
