My Mother died two weeks ago and death seems real.
This semester we are invited to consider time and space as an intrinsic living presence, but what about death? I did a computer search of “death” as it appears in all of the TSK volumes and found numerous references. These references always mention death and life in the same breath. Rinposhe presents birth and death as existing in the realm of opposites along with other dichotomies; joy and suffering, victory and defeat, success and failure. He does not write of “life” in opposition to death. Is it so that in the TSK vision “life” has no opposite and is intrinsic?
