Euthanasia in the original Greek did not mean mercy killing. It meant, rather, to have a good death. In the Buddhist tradition, the dying process is looked upon as the premier window of opportunity for liberation. Over the years, I’ve guided many people through the dying process, usually with very positive results. The basic principles for doing this are amazingly simple.
In a recent California retreat, I gave a detailed and systematic formulation for how to die a good death and how to guide others to do the same. As I myself get older, this material seems increasingly poignant and relevant. Hope you find it useful.
