The first teaching of a week-long P’howa retreat, Jetsunma begins to prepare students’ minds through an understanding of our position in cyclic existence. To practice P’howa, or the Buddhist science of conscious dying that allows one to attain Buddhahood in this lifetime, one must first develop a context for the practice within one’s mind. Developing a strong motivation to exit the wheel of death and rebirth in the six realms is our first step in preparing to truly be of benefit to all beings.
