QUERY> Deathbed Practices - Chinese Buddhist mutual self-help groups

Dear colleagues,

A student is interested in doing a BA thesis project on Buddhist mutual self-help groups in (ancient) China that are involved in deathbed care, such as among some (lay) groups that collectively practice niànfó at the time of death.

If anyone has references to primary or secondary sources on the topic, that would be very much appreciated (you may also contact me privately at h.w.a.blezer@hum.leidenuniv.nl). I added some examples and references below, just to give a rough idea.
