Anyone know a Prayer
    #11359365 - 10/31/09 08:47 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

A very good friend of mine passed away yesterday.
I was hoping you guys could help me find a good prayer
to send him on his way into whatever it is he's about to
encounter.

I've gotta take off to take care of some things, but
I was hoping to find a good Tibetan prayer for death.


thanks

sitting with your intent and feelings is likely more functional than any specific combination of words

Aw man that sucks.. right before holloween too. Yeah I agree with the guy above, you cannot put that much emotion into words, well not easily anyway.

Good luck to him and I hope he rests in peace.

Tibetan prayer for death?

If you're going Tibetan, then he is already reincarnated somewhere :wink:

in Tibetan Buddhism, it takes 49 days for a soul to reincarnate into the next life.

Do not stand at my grave and weep 
  Mary Elizabeth Frye (1905-2004)


    Do not stand at my grave and weep,
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am in a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the softly falling snow.
    I am the gentle showers of rain,
    I am the fields of ripening grain.
    I am in the morning hush,
    I am in the graceful rush
    Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
    I am the starshine of the night.
    I am in the flowers that bloom,
    I am in a quiet room.
    I am in the birds that sing,
    I am in each lovely thing.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there. I do not die.

I went to a buddhist funeral and the monk was chanting, 'Nam myoho renge kyo.'  That's Japanese though. 
Recently I've been chanting, 'Aum ma ni pad me hum,' which I think is Tibetan and should bring about compassion, so I don't know if that's quite the death chant you're looking for.

This Tibetan prayer is designed to guide the dead towards a good incarnation or possibly enlightenment. Its meant to be read to the person who has died. It is the main verses of the six bardos.

Now when the bardo of birth is dawning upon me,
I will abandon laziness for which life has no time,
enter the undistracted path of study, reflection and meditation,
making projections and mind the path,
and realize the three kayas;
now that I have once attained a human body,
there is no time on the path for the mind to wander.

Now when the bardo of dreams is dawning upon me,
I will abandon the corpse-like sleep of careless ignorance,
and let my thoughts enter their natural state without distraction;
controlling and transforming dreams in luminosity,
I will not sleep like any animal
but unify completely sleep and practice.

Now when the bardo of samadhi-meditation dawns upon me,
I will abandon the crowd of distractions and confusions,
and rest in the boundless state without grasping or disturbance;
firm in the two practices: visualization and complete,
at this time of meditation, one-pointed, free from activity,
I will not fall into the power of confused emotions.

Now when the bardo of the moment before death dawns upon me,
I will abandon all grasping, yearning and attachment,
enter undistracted into clear awareness of the teaching,
and eject my consciousness into the space of unborn mind;
as I leave this compound body of flesh and blood
I will know it to be a transitory illusion.

Now when the bardo of dharmata dawns upon me,
I will abandon all thoughts of fear and terror,
I will recognize whatever appears as my projection
and know it to be a vision of the bardo;
now that I have reached this crucial point,
I will not fear the peaceful and wrathful ones, my own projections.

Now when the bardo of becoming dawns upon me,
I will concentrate my mind one-pointedly,
and strive to prolong the results of good karma,
close the womb-entrance and think of resistance;
this is the time when perseverance and pure thought are needed,
abandon jealousy, and meditate on the guru with his consort.

With mind far off, not thinking of death's coming,
performing these meaningless activities,
returning empty-handed now would be complete confusion;
the need is for recognition, holy dharma,
so why not practice dharma at this very moment?
From the mouths of siddhas come these words:
If you do not keep your guru's teaching in your heart
will you not become your own deceiver?

I feel so sorry for you.

I would make some woodfire outside. Watch the flames. And perhaps your thoughts will rise with the smoke, into space where he is...

“So live that when thy summons comes to join
The innumerable caravan that moves
To that mysterious realm, where each shall take
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave,
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.”

-From Thanatopsis by William Cullen Bryant

My condolances to your friend.
