Episode 75: The Best Preparation for Dying Well is Living Well
The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche is the only Rinpoche we know who owns and uses a Blackberry! Rinpoche shares with us the different ways that he has adopted modern technology into the work that he does and into his teaching style. We also speak with Rinpoche about his most recent book, which explores the Bardo teachings, Mind Beyond Death.

He also points out that in terms of the trained mind, both death and life are but two sides of the same coin. Both can bring about enlightenment.
