In this talk I want to say something about the importance of accepting our finitude and making friends with death, as if it was our most intimate companion. I contrast the acceptance of finitude with the flight from finitude - towards a quest for permanence or transcendence found in many religious and spiritual teachings including nondual teachings such as Zen, Advaita and Dzogchen.
