These films will form part of a unique and ground breaking series of films that will be welcomed the world over not only by those interested in Buddhism but fellow travellers on the road to enlightenment. This programme is approximately 165 minutes long and includes H.H. The Dalai lama teaching about the truth of suffering, the Three Characteristics of Existence and the dissolution of the body's elements at death. Meditating on impermanence and the momentary changing nature of existence helps us appreciate the basic unsatisfactory nature of existence, and strive towards liberation. Causally produced things all depend on causes and conditions which contain within them the seeds of their own disintegration. His Holiness encourages us to develop our awareness of death and move from gross understanding to more subtle levels. We need to train our mind in virtuous mental states because our state of mind at the moment of our death conditions our next rebirth. Practising developing positive states of mind is therefore of fundamental importance.
