Love After Death

(p.319) Epilogue
Love and Liberation

Sarah H. Jacoby

Columbia University Press

This concluding chapter narrates the events following Drimé Özer's death, in order to describe how Sera Khandro's love for her guru prevails over death. After his death, a ḍākinī consoled Sera Khandro, telling her that their parting was only an illusion of conventional truth and “in the ultimate sphere of great bliss, method and insights are indivisible.” Two other ḍākinī reminded her that the “adamantine relationship is not different the mind of Pema Landrel.” During one of her visits to Drimé Özer's grave, she prayed “that in this life and all my future incarnations, I will be without separation from you.” This event suggests that Sera Khandros vision for her relationship with Drimé Özer stretched back from a distant past and looked forward to reiterating their mutual commitment in successive births.
