Ancient cultures around the world have related to the inevitable reality of death in deep and practical ways. Prehispanic cultures of Mexico were no exception. This has survived to our day, as what is now called “Day of the Dead”. It is not only a creative and festive family and community celebration but also an important personal time for reflection, remembrance and healing.

As Shambhala meditators, this tradition can bring up a resonance with the deep Buddhist teachings on death and impermanence and our societal approach to working directly with the challenges of our human life.

Note: If you would like to bring a photograph of someone you love that has passed away, and a candle and a flower to the talk, it will be lovely!



Las culturas ancestrales del mundo tienen una relación con la inevitable realidad de la muerte, de maneras profundas y prácticas. Las culturas prehispánicas de México no fueron la excepción. Esto ha sobrevivido hasta hoy en dia como el denominado “Dia de Muertos”. No se trata solamente de una celebración comunitaria y familiar muy creativa y festiva, sino también de un tiempo personal de reflexión, remembranza y sanación.

Como meditadores de Shambhala, esta tradición puede hacer surgir una resonancia con las profundas enseñanzas Budistas sobre la muerte y la impermanencia y nuestro acercamiento social de trabajar directamente con los desafíos de la vida humana.

Nota: Si deseas traer una foto de alguien que amas y que ya falleció y una vela y una flor a la charla, seria fantástico.
