This album contains Lama Zopa Rinpoche's recitation of the Ten Powerful Mantras for the Time of Death.
These powerful mantras can be recited to benefit individuals who are dying or have died.
Rinpoche teaches in How to Face Death without Fear, “It is good to chant or play mantras so the dying person can hear them, this can lift them from sadness or depression. In general, all mantras are very powerful, simply hearing them can purify negative karma and protect from the lower realms.
“Chant nicely, in an uplifting way, [the person] feel protected, supported, and guided. Even if a person has no interest in listening to mantras, hearing them leaves a positive imprint on the mind, so that sooner or later they will meet the path and have the ability to practice the teachings, clear obscurations, and attain enlightenment.”
When printed, these mantras can be laid on the body of someone who is dying or has died to help that person have a peaceful death and to find a higher rebirth.
