This week begins “Do Not Waste Time,” the third week of Caroline Yongue’s retreat on preparing for death. In this third installment, Caroline advises us on how to eliminate distractions from our daily routines, how to create new habits to live more meritoriously, and walks us through the Essential Phowa Practice and the Dissolution of the Elements instruction.

“When we are in the Bardo of Becoming, we are not guaranteed another human birth. Do not waste this precious human life. Live a meritorious life. This is our rare opportunity to practice the dharma.”
