A Mindful Death: Buddhist Approaches to Dying in Taiwan

Ven Dr. Huimin Bhikshu

The Quality of Death (QOD, made by Intelligence Unit of The Economist) Index of the Hospice Care in Taiwan is ranked No. 6 out of 80 countries, first in Asia. Hospice palliative care aims at providing all-encompassing services for patients with terminal diseases suffering from physical, mental, social and spiritual symptoms and pain. Since clinical Buddhist chaplaincy training has been practiced for more than 15 years in Taiwan, there are two topics I would like to discuss in this talk: (1) the comparison between spiritual care and mindfulness-based care: body, mind, and spirit as compared with body, feeling, mind, and Dharma; and (2) the relationship between the Fourfold Mindful Establishment and the triune brain model (i.e., the innermost reptilian brain, the old mammalian brain, and the neocortex). Finally, I will show two videos. One is a case-study demonstrating Buddhist chaplaincy training in hospice & palliative care in Taiwan. It illustrates methods for helping terminal stage patients during the Buddhist chaplaincy training. The other video documents natural burial in the Memorial Garden of Dharma Drum Mountain.
