: I am a nursing student seeking information about the Buddist culture. I would like to find a web site with information about this religon, and their views in regards to medical treatments. How do they view death and dying- are there certain rituals they follow? What are their beliefs on surgeries- for example- the need for an amputation of a limb? If there is a medical professional who is Buddist or someone who could direct me to this information, please email me.
A book you might find useful: At Home with Dying, A Zen Hospice Approach, By Merrill Collett
AccessToInsight got a website organized by subject:
BuddhaNet got a good website on the subject as well:
"All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"
These are the very last words of Buddha. It pretty much summarizes the Buddhist's view on life, illness, death, and practice.
