The word "loss" can mean many things. People say I have lost my mind; I have lost my wallet, or my job; I have lost my wife or husband; I have lost my country etc. These general expressions, they mean you are not able to find whatever it is you are looking for and could be quite mild on an emotional level.
However loss can also mean death: natural death or premature death. This is stronger, however both contain grief. Grief literally means the suffering of parting of separating. We don't like change, we don't like parting - we like meeting. the suffering of parting or separating these days is quite common: explosions, airplanes accidents, and other unexpected tragedies.
Venerable Lama Samten will explain how to deal with loss or grief.
Please bring a plate of vegetarian food for a shared lunch.
