Phowa (Tibetan: འཕོ་བ) or the transference of consciousness, is a powerful method which enables you, if you practice it well during your life, to transfer your consciousness to a pure field at the time of death. There are many levels of transference. By becoming familiar with this method during your lifetime, the moment of death is no longer something to fear, but rather becomes a moment of spiritual triumph and liberation. As you might know, Lama Jigmé holds some very special instructions from his Phowa master, Akyong Siddhi Tulku, who was an extraordinarily accomplished master of Phowa. It is Lama Jigmé’s deepest wish to share these teachings with those who wish to receive them, and to benefit beings at the most important and most vulnerable moment of their lives, the moment of dying.
Knowledge of Buddhism or experience with meditation is not necessary, the method is suitable for everyone.

In Tibetan Buddhism, students traditionally make a donation to their teachers for special teachings. Such donations can be done directly to the Phuntsok Namgyal Ling Foundation, as it will be a contribution to Lama Jigmé’s project to buy a piece of land where practitioners can do serious retreats and studies.
