If death comes very, very suddenly: what possibilities do i have in the moment of death to get good karma for a good reincarnation for next life?
For example a car accident: when it is not possible to have long thinking and to have long prayers?

Response from Tulku Lobsang:

Dear Lothar,

There are three possibilites.
First, in this moment you can try to connect yourself completely with the Buddhas. Make a deep prayer to the Buddhas and masters. Just one thought is all you need. Connection. That is the way for the mind to become silent, clear and pure.

Second, think of great love to all mother sentient beings. One simple thought. This also makes your mind become more pure and clear.

Third, don't think about being attached to anything in your life. Just completely accept what is happening. This makes you calm and clear. This enables you to have a calm and peaceful death. This will affect your next life and is also the way to generate good karma.
