Death, Rebirth, and Meditation

So many people, frightened by fundamentalist’s tales of death and unfortunate rebirths, long for safety and hunger for reassurance. And, as one who dresses like the lovechild of a monk and a hippy, they often ask me what to do.

I remind them, that in the numerical discourses of the Buddha, it is taught that if one trains their mind in love then an auspicious rebirth is assured; for fifty percent of the eight-fold path pertains to loving-kindness.



1) “Profound joy/ for each mind!

2) “Great peace for all/ relationships!

3) “Profound health/ for all forms!” and

4) “Good luck for all/ circumstances!



Practice these four contemplations (four repetitions each) just before meditation and then right after, like bookends, and you too could meditate like a Jedi.
