Happy Uposatha – Prepare for Death

I listened to a Dhamma talk last night by Ajahn Achalo and it had a fortifying effect upon me. So often, in Theravadin circles, we can get inured to the reality of death simply by how much we talk about it. But, how often do we really it to heart? This body will not last. Death will come like a thief and catch me unawares. Am I ready?

The uposatha is a great opportunity to prepare for the ultimate renunciation and the Lord Buddha himself described its great benefit. May we not squander our precious lives and make the most of our meeting with the Dhamma while we are able.
